this is a programme that's been on late afternoon/early evening for the past week (i've recorded it - it's on too early to sit and watch). the concept is that three artists pitch for the commission to produce a piece of art, sculpture, craftwork etc, for someone who has a set amount of money to spend.
some interesting bits of work are produced, very varied, some better than others.
worth watching if you want inspiration to start a new pastime, to make something for yourself or to know what's out there if you're thinking of buying.

I’ve seen one of them, the one where the man had a terminal diagnosis and wanted a legacy piece. I thought the metal family tree was a great idea.

I’d watch it again, quite thought provoking.

I saw one too. The one where the lady made pictures out of felted wool. I found it quite hard to bear the rejections when the people seemed to like all the choices, even though they may sell and artists are given something towards the cost of materials.

I must set it on a series link to record.
