It's a balance between spending enough time making your pots that they are beautiful enough that someone wants to buy them, but not so much time that you wasting time doing things that the market won't pay for. I have some designs that make for really great pots, but I can't get enough money for them at art fairs to make it worth my time to produce them. I get $26 for mugs, and at that price I can trim a foot on them.

Yes and we love your mug here- It never stays in the cabinet! I think my teenage daughters adopted it ...

 "For folks who aren't really interested in making mugs for their own sake, they might be better off working at McDonalds, and spending their actual studio time on the forms they really want to make."

Ray- 

I have to disagree with that statement.  Why would working at Mcdonalds for someone els's sake be better than working in your basement with clay for someone els's sake?  I do agree with you that steins can be art, I love steins. I have a beautiful stein in my collection that Is inspiring to me.  To clarify, to make something that is well made and you enjoy - knowing that the design is simplified to hasten turnover isn't a bad thing.. especially if you want to spend the majority of your time sculpting or decorating other pots.  (ps. I put footings on many of my cups too. To me it depends on the design of the cup)

oldlady - Do you want the recipe for the one with the red stain or the one that turned out greenish?  It is cone 5 with 10 minute hold.  (so 5 1/2) ;)  

 

Neph Sy - 18

Silica - 30

Whiting - 20

Kaolin - 18

Frit 3134- 14

 

I used 8 % encapsulated red mason stain.  but the one that turned greenish called for 

3.8 Tin

.2 Crome

2  bentonite 

 

It's on page 99 of the mid range book.  and a tile on page 100
