why does small = CUTE?

Why are cupcakes cuter than cakes?
Why are puppies cuter than dogs?
Why are Mini Coopers cuter than SUVs?

Small is cute!
I have decided that my daily meditation is 4 wee pitchers.  I have some old wooden soda racks around here somewhere, and that would be a nice display for them at shows, and they can be a nice low priced item at fairs, BUT MOSTLY I find them impossibly cute.  Pitchers and creamers are, you know know, pitchers and creamers, BUT a wee one?  !!!!

That puppy is So Cute! Those teeny pitchers are also cute! I would hate to have to wash them after use, however. ;-)

They are cute. Small seems to be harder than large, they are fun but challenging to create and glaze.

Okay, first that beagle video is ridiculously cute.

Second, tiny pitchers! Also ridiculously cute. Someone who owns a little cafe should buy a big batch of these. I would be very happy to go have tea/coffee/whatever if my cream/honey/whatever came in such a wee little pitcher. Nice colors too!

Impossibly cute.
But then beagles get bigger.
Fortunately, your pitchers won't!

The only trouble with small is that folks expect a small price, where you've put in just about as much work as a medium or large pitcher. However, if you have many many small ones, I guess that makes up for it. They are sweet.

Oh I dunno, I can make 4 of them on the wheel in less than 15 minutes and handles on them in only another 15 minutes max :)

making minis takes expertise, don't price them too low!
