  • Art Of Crafts Interview: Ceramic Artist Jo Lucksted | Art Of Crafts
    s whimsical has beauty and isn t practical it s either something I love or would love to make I admire old fashioned craftsmanship 6 Do you undertake your business on a full time basis or do you have other work family commitments I have a family three kids spanning the age of 3 up to 18 and a husband plus a sorely neglected house and allotment I would say my work is part time but in reality I probably devote more hours to work or work related activity than I did when I was employed and there was a cut off point I m including facebook as work which can lead me to be on the computer until stupid o clock most nights 7 Tell us a little about your typical day and what is involved in running the business Getting up and getting the kids out to school college and nursery is step one Once my youngest is at nursery for the morning I go to my studio to get on with making for orders At the moment most of the work I m producing is being made to order although I need some time to be developing new ideas to supply galleries and to put on my website It s easy to get stuck in the trap of selling online and then reproducing to replace stock it s important to keep coming up with new work but the growth of internet sales has changed the way a lot of makers produce now Once I finish physical hands on making I generally continue with taking photos and uploading images or doing admin or more computer based work in the afternoon and evening And then there s posting orders which always takes more time than you allow for all this is making me realise that I need a bit more structure to my week 8 What advice would you give to others who are considering running a craft based business Speak to other craftspeople they are usually very generous with advice based on their own experiences and can recommend good craft fairs or galleries Social networking is also a good way to meet other makers and share experiences Value what you do look around to see what others are charging but make sure that your prices enable you to make a living you have a skill and an original idea that should be valued so don t undersell yourself it doesn t do you or other makers any favours Get a business head on being creative and business minded don t usually go hand in hand but you must be prepared to take a step back and evaluate your business and where it s going learn from the past reflect on what worked and what didn t and be in a state of constantly assessing what you want to achieve and how to do it Self publicise it s not a sin You might have the most amazing product
