"After looking at the wealth of work out there are some selling for
the same prices I am charging for my work I feel like I am ripping
off the public."

"I am considering not selling anything until I get better, except to
family and friends."

And I say to Steve: Remember that Mata Ortiz potters are in Mexico. A pot
selling there for $25 sell in a gallery in this country for $100.

As far as your work is concerned - quit looking at the prices of other
potter's work and price yours at what you want for it and quit whimpering!
