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.
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!
