Behind the Virtual Storefront: Interview with mobile maker and Etsy seller Marco Mahler

Artist, printmaker and writer Aijung Kim is running a series of interviews with Etsy sellers titled “Behind the Virtual Storefront” in connection with a workshop on Etsy Seller Basics that she is teaching at the VMFA Studio School. She was so nice to ask me to participate:

“I discovered Marco’s shop when I typed “Richmond, VA” in the “Shop Local” feature on Etsy. Marco Mahler’s shop, ArtMobile, intrigued me because fine art mobiles like his are an unusual item to find on Etsy, and he takes great photographs of his work. His mobiles are fun and stylish, and pretty classy-looking if I do say so myself. His 3d-printed mobiles are apparently the first of their kind! Also, I don’t see that many guy sellers on Etsy, so his shop stood out to me for that reason, too. I hope you enjoy reading the interview with Marco. Turns out he’s pretty business-savvy. I learned a lot from reading his answers. Enjoy!”
