  1. https://nyti.ms/34ROrkx This potter convinced a farm-to-table restaurant to include dinnerware in its ethos. He takes their beef bones, calcines them, adds kaolin and Cornish stone and thin-casts cups, bowls and plates, oxidation fired to 2400F. Being very thin, the cups and bowls warp so that each is different. No glaze is mentioned for his once-fire, maybe they self-glaze? This all seems pretty precious to me - a Concept gimmick. I'd hate to be the dishwasher there, and storage? No stacking! I also wonder if the potter picks up and recycles the shards from inevitable breakage.
  2. I am thinking of opening a members only clay studio, as all of them in my area have long waitlists and the demand is there. I haven’t found any recent threads on the operations costs or best practices associated with running a studio. Can anyone help me out by providing hard expenses associated with and any tips for this business? Thanks in advance for your help!
  3. New Business (What advice would you give yourself when you started doing Ceramics Full-Time) First, thank you all for taking your time reading this post. I appreciate all the advice and wisdom I can gain from a site like this. I am married to a ceramics artist and I would love to be able to aid her in the desire to run her business full time. I have a business finance background and have mostly done customer service, management or operations management in my young career. This post is not about me though, it is about my wife whom is a very talented ceramics artist whom does not set limits
  4. I recently set up an Etsy storefront, and I really would like to visit the etsy sites of other forum members, just to see how they have handled it. I imagine it wouldn't be kosher to post URLs here, but I would be grateful if anyone wanted to message me with their etsy info, so I could take a peek.
  5. 8 years ago a purchased a "Paint your own Pottery" studio with the intention of expanding it into both painting pottery, and a clay studio with pottery wheels, demos, classes, etc. I thought it would be great to be able to make my own pieces, display and sell them in the studio, as well as have the usual clientelle who just came in to paint. But over the years I have been too busy working to get work done! haha. Payroll, bookkeeping, taxes, scheduling employees, working extra shifts, teaching classes, customer service, ordering supplies, etc... plus getting all of our customer's pottery fi
  6. I am looking for an accountant to help me with business taxes, but I don't want to spend a crazy amount of money. I only make and sell pottery part time so my business is very small. I thought last year I could figure out how to do my own taxes. After all, I'm fairly intelligent and plenty of people seem to think it's no big deal. That was a fiasco! I really need some professional help (not just with the taxes after that mess). What is a reasonable price I should expect to pay to get the business ones done?
  7. Now that it's 2015, it's time to upgrade my way of doing business. I remember reading in one of the CAMs, one of the artists featured had found an accounting program which was more arts/crafts/art fair friendly than QuickBooks. Does anyone happen to know which one that was? I am truly tired of how intuitive QuickBooks is *not*! Dammit, Jim! I'm an artist, not an accountant! Thanks for the input.
  8. The forums here at Ceramic Arts Daily have been a huge help as I try to navigate the intricacies, complexities, joys, and frustrations of running my own pottery business. I figured it was time to actually get acquainted with some of you and begin developing relationships that I feel could really aid me in my pursuit of doing this pottery thing full time. Here's the scoop. I have only thrown/turned pottery for just a little over a year now (see some images of my work below), and would love to go full-time in the next year or two. I realize to some of you, the previous sentence may border on
  9. My name is Kristofer Hammer and I am a student of Union College in the USA, and I am applying for the Watson fellowship. This would allow me to study internationally for a year, traveling from various countries for my personal project proposal. My desire is to study Ceramics and the production of ceramics across the globe and I am hoping to not only work alongside artists, but to see how the Clay comes from the earth and into a persons hands. I was hoping that this community would be willing/able in assisting me in my dream, and might be able to provide me with any contact details of artists o
  10. Hi all Just read this little article and it made me stop and think of my task management as a sole trader potter...... not good! Happy to spend hours in the studio...or... get lost in the business side hardly making a thing for days.....either way the procrastination can set in. How do you keep your focus clear when you are 'making' or 'managing'? Be good to know. http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/working-smarter/productivity/are-you-a-maker-or-a-manager Irene
  11. Hi all Wondering what other potters do with their product 'seconds? I have smashed the pitiable ones, I have given many away to friends until eyes glaze and smiles freeze at another pot I have damaged the maker's mark and sold them cheaply at school fetes and carpark markets well away from my gallery and high end outlets but....after 12 years I'm running out of ideas. I don't mean the really horrible 'seconds' which deserve a new life as mosaic .....but those with a small fault that are still functional but not 'good enough' for the regular outlets where high quality and reputat
