My wife insists that I should offer a discount to other artists at art festivals. I prefer not to, but in the interest of a happy life I will. If I am interested in their art a trade would be nice. Fortunately I have never been asked to trade by someone whose art I don't care for; that could be awkward.

The Evenheat $500 is if you are converting from their earlier model. It sounds as though it might be more costly as a stand alone.

Being able to change things mid-fire sounds good, but probably a rarely used feature. Unless of course you programmed one of the user schedules incorrectly and want to make a change. Been there, Bartlett didn't like the idea

Bravo Mark! A well thought out and explained plan and a shop willing to take a risk equaled success.

I retired last February and now am devoting myself to pottery and am looking for ways to market my production. I have just branched out from my art fair, art center and regional invitational sales venues to include a gallery with a 50-50 split. The art fair overhead is pretty close to the gallery split when all costs are figured in (I am not one of those folks with multiple thousands in sales at art fairs.) The art center and regional invitational both get 30% of the sale, and there are few other costs other than getting the work to and fro. So your split is attractive, and it would be nice to find something similar here in Georgia. I wonder if the Krispy Kreme donut shops sell coffee mugs......

Best luck with the growth of your sales.

I consistently find inspiration from the CAD feed. Even if a subject may not be of interest at the moment, just knowing that something came through may be a reminder to search when I may need that bit of information. Even the more commercial advertisements of books and videos typically have a teaser that are frequently useful. I love being able to search an archive of the depth CAD provides.

I think some credit should be given to the design of the egg as well, but kudos to your bright lad.
