Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
Getting ready for a local art show/sale, I communed with some fellow potters concerning pricing. As expected, I received both high and low recommendations, both with reasonable and logical thought. I opted for the lower end and received some comments at the sale about my work being under priced. But I appreciated one comment more than others from a lady who thanked me for making my work accessible to those that could not afford the majority of items at the sale.
I enjoy making things from clay, but I also want others, who enjoy what I do, to be able to afford it; therefore, my current approach to pricing. I do have the advantage that I am a hobby potter and only have to reclaim my cost; I don’t have to earn an income to support myself.
