I'd like to hear from any potters out there who are able to make a living
strictly from the sale of their pots alone.
What type of pottery do you make (functional or nonfunctional, all handmade
originals or slipware from molds ) ?
Do you feel you had to compromise your art to create what sells ?
Generally where do you sell your pots ?
Are you in business alone ?
Any words of wisdom you can pass on from your experience ?
Anyone care to share their story ?

Our Gallery had the best month we have ever had. We are still having =
decent sales. No bargain hunters or sales on work. We were very thankful =
for the support. Nick Zappa

Weeelcome to the world of of selling the out pourings of your soul! Ignore
the negative (they have issues with manners) graciously accept the positive.
I don't do'em. They're a pain. Some of my work gets shuffled from gallery to
market to show and the price has to fluctuate. Some galleries take a 50%cut.
They end up EVERYWHERE.
I found one stuck to my derriere for $8.50. I won't disclose ensuing comments.
You can fudge your numbers that way too.
I use duplicate receipts from OfficeMax and record their address (w/permission)
for future ref. Some folks have an address book for cust. to sign
I carry a small note pad (or post-its) for notes and sketches.

a great video about why you do what you do.
