BBC 15 November 2019 – “The Business Side Of The Artist/Inventor Journey” w/ Dr. Rosette Gault

This BBC Friday Dr. Rosette Gault will share a fascinating look at the business side of doing art and invention. Rosette will give a little hands-on presentation with artist founder’s vision and inventors journey – from long research, inception, conception, development, trademark patent and licensing, and business model – specifically the business side of the process – including what she has learned, and research still ahead.
Learn about the medium of paperclay which Rosette discovered, publishing her findings 20 years ago. Sculptors and other artists have adopted paperclay worldwide. The medium of paperclay saves time, fuel, and money, and opens a big door to sustainable materials research with natural polymers (from cellulose-based plant fiber compounds with minerals of ceramic clays, sustainable materials of the future). The roots of this medium were developed with the world’s largest field study by artists worldwide, and applications outside the field of art are many, e.g., filtration, medicine, refractories. More information available at and Rosette’s Amazon author page:
Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! …Arr.
