setting up an art pottery business

I'm trying to focus this year on coming up with prototype designs for an art
business: in part, functional art pottery that I'd probably have reproduced
by way of molds, as I'm not a production potter. I've been scoping out the
commercial stuff. Of course, no comparison, but in terms of functional use,
I wonder how they make stuff microwaveable, dishwasher, and in some cases
oven proof? I imagine it is just high fire,or very high fire probably
stoneware? But that really wasn't what I wanted to ask. Does anyone have a
template of action steps for setting up an art pottery business that would
lend itself to production on some level?
