Simply defined, production work is making multiples of the same thing. Usually the copies are exactly the same, but often I just can not help myself from making at least one change on each item. The advantage of production work is that it is an efficient use of time. I can lay out components and then create multiples of the same or similar item completing one step on all items at a time.
Production work is good for popular items and for items that are similar in design. But do not fear, every piece I make is still given thought and care in its creation.
