In Topic: Sales Studio Ready For Use

25 November 2015 - 09:44 AM

Congratulation on finishing in time for Christmas, everything is looking good.  More vignettes and less grocery store, vignettes draw attention and sell more product.  You'll overhear customers talking about how cute those look together and end up buying two or three pieces just because they were together.  As artist we assume that most customers have some artistic sensibility, we are wrong.  I was a decorator for 15 years and I had customers  that couldn't even pick out a favorite color, if you showed them more than 3 wallpaper or fabric samples they got confused.  If they insisted on seeing a lot more samples I would slip the first three I had picked out into the bottom of the pile. They would always pick one of those, I would put your most expensive work where it was the most visible when you walk into the door.  Good Luck      Denice

In Topic: Do You Eat Off Your Own Pots Everyday ?

23 November 2015 - 05:26 PM

We have been eating off a dinnerware set I made about 10 years ago.  I went shopping to buy a set of dishes and found some Fiesta Ware on sale I looked at it closely and notice the the foot of the plates were scratching the top glaze just from being stacked.  I thought I can do better than this, so I used a durable blue glaze developed by Tony Hansen that is food safe.  I ended up with 8 place settings and a lot of bowls, it's also nice knowing you can replace one anytime you want.  Denice

Very nice I always wanted a sales studio that was show room in the front and studio in the back but I didn't consider the dust factor.    Denice

If you would let us know what area of the U.S. or the world and what type of area that you are digging the clay from would help in answering your question.  Denice
