I have been getting quite a few comments on the hourly rate of a potter. Molly Cantor helped me to realize that I didn’t add in a few things like rent/mortgage, kiln repairs, show fees, advertising, web design fees etc. Whoa… if I add all these in I think the hourly rate goes down to $5.00 an hour or less. So why is it we potters are potters???? We really do love our work I guess! I know I do!!!
