Quick Consignment Deal - Need Confirmation :)

14 December 2014 - 02:02 PM

I was approached at the craft sale yesterday by a man who is leasing (temporarily) a store location in the main mall in green bay.  The spot opened up last minute due to a major chain store going out of business leaving prime space open during the christmas season.  

He is leasing the space out to several higher end hand made businesses. (he has 8 in the store so far) 

The Deal he is offering is - 


$250 lease for space


20% commission for him since i am unable to staff my section (it's 2 hrs away)  


He will process credit card payments and provide money order and not deduct processing fees. (because i use square) 


I need to pick up my items by January 10th.  


He agreed not to take the 20% commission if the sales do not exceed $800


I would need to drive the items out as soon as possible this week, and set up the space. He has wall brackets and wall shelving that would hold the weight of the items (i asked this)



Are there any things i need to be aware of that are not covered in the agreement? 


Does this sound stupid or amazing?



Input Would Be Great!

I just uploaded a gallery with my current beer / Coffee cups (they hold 12-16 oz)  Polish and german designs.  I am working to make them have more of a "stein" look.  The old ones were 1# and the new ones are 1.5 # to make them bigger.  Planning to do more cobalt oxide wash on these than the previous batch.  Other than that it's just a clear glaze with clay body shining through. I would love to hear some more tips if anybody sees a way I can make them better. <3 Thanks!! 

Making "bosses" (Little Bumps On Old Pots)

I have the stamp a friend made- does anyone have experience or tips to doing this? I was told to slip and score each one which is fine but I want to be sure its the most efficient way

My First Show!

26 September 2014 - 01:36 PM

My first show is this sunday- I did a mock up of my display in my yard.  I am having a difficult time opening the canopy (you can see aside it is not set up) Good thing I didn't wait until the last minute to try it.  Somebody mentioned that they used bags or boxes of clay as weights. I don't have weights at the moment but i have clay.  How would you suggest I go about doing this? Is a whole 50# box needed or do I need to go with a 25# bag? Thanks!!  


 I would also love if you have some pointers or obvious display mistakes I am making.  

Repair Bisque Piece?

14 September 2014 - 11:27 PM

My favorite bowl exploded in the kiln (bisque fire) It's completely in tact except for a sculpted appliqué piece (I actually put the clay on the piece and then sculpted it) I REALLLY want to save this bowl.  It's my largest bowl yet 8#, and had a face sculpted in it.  The front of the face blew right off... :( 


Would a paper clay mixture actually help repair bisque?  Just water/slip?
