I almost think I'm about to ask a no-brainer. I'm a relatively new potter (going on five years) and am earnestly trying to increase my sales. I pot at a community studio for now, and I've asked my fellow potters about selling pieces that aren't quite perfect. For example, I had a lid warp on a butter dish, and though I ground the offending curves to make it fit, the inside warp doesn't allow for a full block of Kerrygold butter to fit. I think it should go in the garbage--and pieces like it--but my fellow potters say, "If they want perfect, they should go to Wal Mart." Some of these potters have more than 40 years experience making and selling pottery. I'm I being unreasonable? I understand a little imperfection may be expected, despite taking precautions. How does this community feel about that? Thank you.
