Employment Opportunity

Ceramics designers produce commercially successful designs and turn them for mass production. Ceramics designers who are self-employed or work for small companies are more likely to both design and make their own limited edition designs. Depending on if you are employed or self-employed, how experienced, successful, and well-established you are, and how active and skilful you are at promoting your work, salaries will vary.
