Donn - The Production Potter
Being a production potter means that you create pottery items in a consistent and repetitive manner, often in larger quantities than other types of potters. The goal of production pottery is to produce functional pottery items that can be used in everyday life, such as bowls, mugs, plates, and other kitchenware.
The work of a production potter requires a high level of skill and attention to detail to ensure consistency in shape, size, and quality of each piece. Production potters often develop their own unique style, which may include specific forms, glazes, or decorative techniques.
While production pottery is often associated with creating functional items in larger quantities, many production potters also create one-of-a-kind pieces and art pieces that are sold alongside their production items.
