I've gotten quite a lot of orders from wholesale galleries in the last month, so I am up to my elbows in clay, trying to sort all the pots needed, see what else I need to make and generally move them all from a state of dirt to a state of art exchangeable for dineros. During all this craziness, my husband (always the businessman) asked a pointed question on if this all was profitable. What a question!
Anyway, I decided I would tally all the hours and see how this all pans out with expenses, time, etc. I read an article in the last Ceramics Monthly or Pottery Illustrated on a clay person who had recently done this and thought I should do my own study for my own satisfaction. If anyone can remind me of which issue this was in, that would be great. I'd like to review it and it is probably in a stack somewhere.
