    On the visitors with the old jokes, I thought of my father, a charming old-fashioned little man from the old country with a heavy accent and a very unusual elfin sense of humor that was only meant to create a bridge and bring a smile.  
    I hope everyone considers the spirit in which such jokes are made. My father's intentions were only good, never at anyone's expense.

    i am not unwilling to take advice, that is why I asked.  I just like solid pieces better. Sculpture is different than pots and bowls, it has a life to it, being hollow affects it, I know that probably sounds strange but that's how I feel.

    Have a look at this John Mason sculpture, 
    images are at: 
     
    and:
    http://www.artnet.com/magazineus/features/drohojowska-philp/ceramics-in-los-angeles-3-21-12_detail.asp?picnum=7 and 
    pictured in the second edition of Daniel Rhodes book "Clay and Glazes for the Potter" has the following caption by Rhodes: "John Mason.  Cross.  This massive sculpture,  made of solid clay,  is 5 1/2 ft.  high.   A mustard-colored glaze partially covers the surface" 
    John Mason
    American, born 1927
    Cross Form, 1962/63
    Stoneware with glaze
    161.3 x 132 x 91.4 cm (63 1/2 x 52 x 63 in.)
    Gift of the Ford Foundation, 1964.71

    John obviously knew how to fire thick pieces without blowing them up. 
    Also remember house bricks are thicker than one half inch! 
    Large sculpture pieces are usually made with a clay body designed for sculpture and have a firing schedule designed specifically for sculpture.  The half inch limit is seems to have developed for table ware and household storage containers.

    @yappystudent If you’re selling wholesale anything, it’s a good idea to have some kind of minimum first order size or dollar amount  that will allow a store owner to make an appealing display of the product, and to make it worth your while to fire the kiln. Subsequent reorder amounts can be smaller, as the assumption is that they’re rebuilding the display, not starting from scratch. Sitting down with a store owner to do some market research to ensure maximum mutual benefit is a tactic that works for any product you’d like to try selling. Usually I have a $150 minimum order for mugs and yarn jars, as a for instance.

    Oh, don't worry too much. The radio told me just today that Bongs and Such has three locations in Calgary to serve me better! They’re usually in questionable strip malls, have lots of Rastafarian flags and pot leaves everywhere and everything there still smells like patchouli. The old was still live on.
