Porcelain Products.. A Weird Craving that Was an Eye-opener
I don’t know where my craving for ceramics emanated from. But the obsession ballooned up so fast that within the first year into this industry has given me much success as my business continues to expand.
It was sometimes in 2011 when I was still heavily pregnant with my second child. During that period, a friend came to visit me as with her she had a gift, a colorful Korean-made porcelain plant pot; which I immediately fell in love with. However, it was one of the perfect gifts that I have ever received. And, that was the beginning of a journey into the ceramics world.
What made me get Interested in Ceramics and Porcelain Products
Since I was expecting another child, I felt the urge to make a few changes on the décor of the house. There was need to welcome the child with another ambiance. I talked to my husband about it, and he was no problem with that as long as it made me happy.
Thus within three weeks of receiving the plant pot, I found myself visiting ceramics outlets so that I purchase some. Basically I needed some plant pots for both interior and exterior décor. Being choosy as I always was, it became harder to make the right decision on what to pick or not.
I had this fear that I would buy something
However, this didn’t match the theme of my house. This impeded me from making fast decisions. Most of what I found in display at the outlets never impressed me. Soon I began searching for ceramics wares online with hopes of getting something unique.
That’s how I landed to etsy e-commerce site; which became my source of inspiration. I loved the way the shops at etsy showcased their porcelain products. It is here that I purchased some plant pots. But apart from that, I started to research the whole process of making ceramics.
I took time to study, researching from one website to the other and sometimes talking to ceramic crafters The whole thing was overwhelming. But my curiosity made be patient and hence I learned a lot. However, it was after a year and half that I got into the whole process of making ceramics. That was after my son was born.
Handmade Porcelain Plants Pots that Resulted to My Success
My first shot was making porcelain pots. I choose to make plant pots because they were easy and I wanted to craft mine; which would match the theme of my garden and house. It wasn’t that easy at first and I ended up making a mistake or two or with something; which was not appealing at all. But with time I mastered the art.
But that was about 7 months later. By this time, I had the Midas touch with pottery and porcelain products that made my friends and other visitors who came by my house to marvel at my great work. This did not only motivate me. But made me decided to open my own outlet where I could sell my products locally.
What started as a small outlet in my local shopping center has; since grow to be a mammoth ceramics outlet; which already had two branches in the neighboring towns. I do intend to make more expansions, maybe launch an online store for my products in future. All in all, I love whatever I’m doing.
