I am looking into a design patent for some of my work. It's an expensive process and will involve hiring a lawyer. -.-
A design patent could be a double-edged sword for a handmade pottery business. It might encourage you to not evolve your work, because you've invested so much in the patent and don't want to stray outside of the protected area. And I agree with John, enforcing your patent will still be very expensive.
