I just purchased a 24" tabletop photo studio kit to help me with my Etsy site, only to find that the included lights are too dim for even a sunny afternoon in a Tillamook, Oregon pottery studio. I plan to order better lights, and this time I want to be SURE they'll be bright enough for me to showcase my work.  I've been pottering for over a decade, but this is the first time I've been serious about photographing/ selling my work, so any and all feedback would be very much appreciated.

Here's the studio I purchased: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RDQ99HY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And here are some of the lighting kits I'm considering (please speak up if you have suggestions other than these!!):

Thank you in advance for sharing your wisdom!

Get something that allows you to use regular screw-in bulbs, like the second one on your list, and also get two clamp-on reflector lights that you can clamp onto those tripods. 4 bulbs will light better than two, so you can light high and low. Then get 15-20 watt LED bulbs, which are equivalent to 100 watt incandescent bulbs. You can adjust how intense they are by how closely you set them to the cube.
