In Topic: First Custom Order! Help With Pricing.

One of the reasons for selling it lower for wholesale is because all of the other components and time suckers that goes into selling each individual pot are removed.  Going to shows, packaging, shipping, marketing, those things are done for random walk by sales, but with wholesale you remove all of those other time and money factors PLUS you are selling more of them.  It seems like a good deal, but be sure that you are not marking wholesale prices for small orders and not marking them too low. You may need to raise suggested retail for the items to allow yourself to be paid appropriately.

I love ancient pots with animal attachments, faces, and unusual handles.  It feels like it's giving soul and a face to something from a time that is hard to conceive.  I love how the shapes of pots are not the same that we find in modern pottery. 

 

My favorite "modern" potter has got to be lucy rei. probably for the same reason, she made shapes that she likes, not what she thought  she was supposed to make.
