Sumi I have traveled successfully with my porcelain in my check in luggage several times before. 
I use a large hard shell suitcase with a box situated in the middle and clothes  and tools wrapped around it. The work is wrapped with bubble wrap inside the box. 
This last time that I went to Europe I wrapped it in bubble wrap and then in corrugated box wrap.  That was a mistake. I lost 2 pieces. 
My work is light. My biggest nuisance is that my bags are often checked by TPA.

Check a carefully packed box when you fly, or ship a box to the workshop site? A third option is to check your clothes and carry on the pottery but there is a size limitation to that approach.
