my favorite comment is when a person asks if I sell on line. I usually just direct them to my website where they can purchase a limited selection of work. but I want to say, " as you can see I have all of my work on display for you here, and you won't have to pay any shipping"
I actually do production wheel throwing for another potter. My work is all hand built. I do have a new wheel thrown bowl that I have been making for a customer. But throwing more than 3-4 pounds is difficult for me. I really do not like throwing large on a regular basis. and I do not think that my personal thrown work is very me.
I have a hump mold for a 14" square platter and I made one out of the midrange porcelain. I do not want to make it out of earthenware. Mostly because I use commercial earthenware glazes and it will use a pint to glaze one. I know thats a lame excuse. The durability is also a factor.
See how I just have all of these excuses. I will make a few more large platters tonight to see how it goes. I do like the idea of 6 mugs on the platter as a set...
