Great Box for Shipping Pottery!

One of the most asked questions potters ask other potters is 'how do you ship your pottery?'. I have always had great success wrapping my pottery in bubble wrap, placing it in a box that has about 3 inches of space between the pottery and the box and then packing it tight with peanuts. Most potters will tell you that you must double box your pottery. The reason I bring this up is because of a package I recently received from Axner.

My husband is building a ball mill for me (I will blog on this later). I ordered 2 porcelain jars that will fit the base that he is building. The box that these porcelain jars came in I thought was a piece of art. Simply made but built to protect. The box was about 3 inches larger than the jar and had 3 inserts that the jar sat in. A carboard surrounding the jar and a top and bottom that closes the jar in. The cardboard that surrounds the jar has about a 1" flap on each side that keeps the jar from hitting the outside box. This box is something anyone could make and I know it works because one of the boxes came damaged (see photo) but the jar was not. These jars are very heavy yet those 1" flaps kept the jar safely away from the damaged area.


  1. Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  10. I do not create many remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here
    "Great Box for Shipping Pottery!". And I actually do have
    some questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Could it be just me or does it appear like some of the responses look like coming
    from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow everything fresh
    you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your social sites like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
