Another Discussion About Consignment/wholesale

11 February 2014 - 08:26 AM

Recently I was approached by a local business (fibermill) about putting my yarn bowls in their retail space.   We worked out a consignment deal.  Things have been going well.   We are now in discussion about getting a stamp made with their logo that I will use on mugs/yarn bowls.   I realized this morning (in the wee hours), that I will probably have to negotiate a different deal for anything I make with their logo on it.  It would not be an item I could return to my inventory, since it has their brand.   What has been your experience with that?  What are some things I should know about making something specific for a company or business?? 


Thank you,


Kiln Cement/kiln Mortar

I chunked out a piece of fire brick when I was replacing an element holder.   Any opinions as to which is better.....kiln cement (rather pricey) or kiln mortar?  




ounces to grams

16 June 2013 - 08:30 AM

I was given a couple of glaze recipes from a potter in England. This person mixes glazes using pounds/ounces. I converted from ounces to grams. Should this make a difference in mixing the glazes? Totaled up, it comes to an odd number like 2501.84. I don't want to mix that large of a batch initially, so for testing purposes, I divided by 10. so I would be working with a batch of 250.18. Am I on the right track with this?? Thanks for your help.
