We are getting ready to launch a new pottery business… this post will show the process of getting the mugs ready for firing…
First, we start with your business’s brand or logo.
Then the logo is prepped to turn it into a stamp
Once the stamp has been created, it’s time to throw on the wheel… The clay is measured out and de-aired in preparation for throwing.
After the mugs are thrown, the handles and thumb rests are pulled and applied…
Next, the stamps are made and applied…
Finally, wax resist is painted over the joints to ensure even drying which means no cracks!
These will probably take a week or more to dry so they can be fired in the kiln. The next post will show the glazing process!

At this point, the pricing structure goes like this… Each order has a one time stamp fee of $100 and the price per mug will depend on the quantity ordered (two dozen minimum order) Pricing differs for wholesale and retail.
To get started, I need a high resolution logo which may need to be adapted to make the letters work with the stamping process. If you don’t have a logo, a logo can be created for $150. Also, a deposit of 50% down to hold your place in the schedule and purchase supplies.
If you are interested in placing an order for two dozen or more original, high quality, stoneware mugs with or without logos, simply go to http://www.customwoodcarvings.com and click the contact page to get in touch…
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this post.
In the hands of the Master Potter…
