Do You Have Seasonal Lines?

09 February 2017 - 10:57 AM

As the snow flies outside, I'm looking at a simple bird feeder I made last year hanging in y big window, and thinking about seasonal lines. I know that I need to have a base product line: urns, keepsake jars, kitchen goods, some ceramic jewelry. But I have been doing research and it indicates that a seasonal line should be created and marketed every season.

 

I have to say, I'm somewhat flummoxed as what to create for a Fall and Spring line. I think bird feeders, birdhouses, they can go Spring or Summer. Frog houses would be summer, as would windchimes, etc. But beyond that, I'm not sure what items would be in those categories. 

 

So I guess what I'm asking is:

- do you have seasonal product lines and, if so, every season

- where do you get your ideas for each season?

Thanks,

nancy

How Would An Imprinted Name Come Out Saggar'd?

08 January 2017 - 06:11 PM

Hi all,
I make custom urns with names impressed into them like the greenish bluish one shown. A woman wants an urn saggar'd like the one shown, and wants a name impressed. I have never done this before, and dont know if the name will come out a funky odd color and if where the name is imoressed will. Be a weak point, and perhaps crack in the saggar process?
Has anyone imprinted something into a saggar pot? Can it be done? If so, concerns?
I let her know I was not sure about this at all, but I'd check. Thanks!!

Can Tall Teapots Like These Be Handbuilt? These Are Extruded

31 December 2016 - 06:07 PM

But i don't have an extruder. Am thinking of buying one, but don't know if I'd find enough to make to make it worth it.
BTW, I am not good at throwing and I'm finding handbuilding quite challenging, so extruding may help my pottery life.

How Do You Make These Lids?

28 December 2016 - 11:11 PM

HI all,
I'm trying to find out how you make these pointy lids? Both throwing them and handbuilding. And what if you want an inner rim to these, under the hood? to keep it on the spot? Thanks! (and yes, I did look it up!!)
Thanks!
