Everyday Stresses

Posted by [email protected] on April 16, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Well, I am starting a blog about the trials of having a pottery business in the US in todays times!  There is a significant amount of stress involved in creating a unique hand  crafted product that can be mass produced and still be hand painted and hand rolled.  There is also a great amount of stress involved in keeping your techniques and glaze colors secret.  Let me start by introducing myself to those who do not know me.  My name is Kim Ries and I am owner and artist for Heartfelt Traditions pottery. I have been creating unique stoneware for over 10 years now and the industry has changed drastically in those 10 years.  I mostly wholesale my products but have started retailing them over the past year.  I would love to hear from anyone trying to join in this industry or anyone already a part of this industry and hear what you have to share about the topics I mentioned.  I will post again tomorrow.

I'm there with ya', sister! Been making handmade, stoneware pottery for about 12 years now. Sell mostly at shows, but starting to (timidly) venture into the wholesale market and open my home studio up to the public a little.
We can share, cry, laugh and learn together!

Kim, I've had a kiln for about 26 years now and still love it just as much as when I got my first one! My husband and I do pottery everyday and love it! Your creations are beautiful!
