I've been sorting out templates to make different sizes of hearts and have some as garlands and some as solid shapes. They all seem to work well. I've decided to do that so I can order boxes to present them, sell them looking like a present.
I made a batch of small ones today, I thought I'd see how long they take to do and start monitoring how long pieces take to make in comparison with how much I can sell them for, see if the designs are realistic I guess. Well that was the plan but I forgot to properly time myself as my hands got so cold! I need to change an element on the kiln and get the pottery heated up again.
These little ones are about 10 cms long, I'll search for some fine ribbon for these.
