We are taking part in March Meet the Maker – worth a follow if you do social media. Today’s daily prompt was ‘numbers’. Certainly, these are important in running a creative business – pricing, ordering, accounts, measuring clay, weighing glazes, deciding how much of any item to make. But we both agree that they are important only if they stay in the background. What is more important is that we make what we love. That we connect with others in what we do. That we build relationships with our community and with our customers. This picture is going to someone tomorrow, ordered as a gift, with a story about why it was just right for the recipient. They are the things that matter more than the numbers.
