following arnold's advice:
potters should check out your local undertaker/funeral home
and see if they will carry your urns. i know this could be
a huge business opportunity.
as most of you know, urns etc from those places are running
in the hundreds of dollars, and i suppose they like the
cheap chinese made urns best. buy for ten bucks, sell them
for three hundred.
but, worth a try.
many smaller town funeral homes would love to have
`home made` urns. (it would help to let customers know that
your urn will last 50,000 years. (i fill urns when they buy
from me, extra service as needed. does not bother me.
just ash.) those cheap wooden urns, or fake copper will
fall apart in ten years. those metal urns will rust out in
about five years if buried. by the way, i epoxy the lids
on. sure don't want that spilling on the living room rug.
it sure has been easy for me to promote my work on the net
with `melpots.com` address. and, it is easy to remember.
please note: if you are going to approach a funeral home
for interview, dress up, have samples, your card and a brief
history of buried ceramics. it is the oldest hand made item
in the world. it will last `forever...` sell that with
oh, and remember some very fine restaurants are needing very
unusual ceramics for very modern food service. worth a try.
colleen has sold over 100 jars for rollups, you know, fork
and knife. many are liking that pot full of forks...makes it
easy for the server. casual dining places love them.
