Bravo Mel for taking the time to write this important posting.

Everyone trying to learn how to market their work and find a niche should not
only read this through, but print it and read it again .... maybe even pin it
up in your studio.

The key lies in putting as much effort into selling as into making. Keep
trying different venues and realize that it takes time to find your rhythm in
sales. You have to learn where your work will sell and where you could not
even give it away.The absolute best potters on earth still have to find the
right places to sell.

Craft Shows sell - the Internet sells - Galleries sell - Home Shows sell ---
but not for everyone all the time.
