No, I do not know anyone who has used them but I have a strategy that may work. Go to a Women's Shelter and donate your functional pottery to them. They may use it for their Sunday dinners or special occasions. Ask them to use your items when they have open houses or fund-raisers. Have little "A"cards" along side of the items describing who you are, about your work, etc. Of course, have the press report on your donation with pictures and all. The story could be "Another Benefit of the Arts". Maybe some of the disadvantaged women could be reps. Train them to sell and how to offer your work to stores. You will not only make a profit, but you will help someone help themselves and possibly get a devoted rep in the process.
