Now when I go back to a show I've done before, I know exactly how much total inventory to bring, and how many of each item. "I sold out of mugs last time, better bring more." "This was a good show (or a bad show) for my higher end line of work. Better bring more (or fewer)." Or even sometimes "I sold nothing but low-priced items, not worth going back." Just taking the time to record this information makes for confident decisions later.

My name is Mea Rhee, and I am the potter behind Good Elephant Pottery. I make functional pottery for daily use, fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln. My designs are minimal and rustic, and always functional. I consider myself "self-taught" in that I am not formally trained in ceramics, though I have had many wonderful teachers along the way. My degree is in graphic design, and most of my professional life has revolved around a busy design studio. In 2010, I was able to “retire” from design and devote a full-time schedule to the pottery studio. I put “retire” in quotes because I now work harder than ever before. It is a dream come true and I am grateful for this every day.
