Hello! I am a ceramicist working in Canada and selling to retailers in the US. I have found that when shipping large quantities of work (around 20 objects) to the US, my customers get charged with an FDA fee- this fee was applied only to the objects that fall under the food-use category (to protect against import of food-use pottery that contains cadmium or lead). Any thoughts on how to work around this fee? Thanks in advance.
Hi all, Thought came up when reading through another thread about REAL work and the percieved value/under value of what we do. How do you cost your labour/time for what you make?......by the hour?....daily rate?....by the piece? Mathematical equation?...guess?....don't think of it?? What percentage of your product's price reflect your labour cost? In Australia a solicitor is worth $350/hr, a plumber $150 and my mechanic $120......what is a potter's time worth? Irene
