Starting a business that designs, produces and sells pottery items is definitely best suited for the entrepreneur with a creative flair who is seeking a unique home based business opportunity.
Some of the aspects of this business to be considered are:
• Ability. Anyone considering this business venture will definitely need the ability to not only create pottery items, but to create interesting and unique pottery items.
• Equipment and supplies. All equipment and supplies required for starting and operating a pottery making business are readily available in almost every community through craft supply stores that stock the items or order the items on an as-needed basis.
• Marketing. Pottery items can be sold by renting a table at craft shows, by selling the pottery to retailers on a wholesale basis, and by placing the pottery items in retail stores on a consignment basis.
• Business location. A pottery business is ideally suited to being operated from a home based studio location. Additionally, if zoning permits, the studio can also act as a retail outlet or factory direct sales outlet for the pottery products.
In addition to creating and selling pottery items, you can also generate additional revenue by holding instructional classes on pottery making and pottery glazing techniques.
