So I have been thinking about these for awhile. I made them about 10 years ago and they are in my office window so I see them every day. They are stoneware cone 6 miniature non-working Japanese Lanterns. These pieces would only be suitable for larger bonsai but I am considering making a few a little smaller to sell. They are a bit time consuming, as I recall, so I am showing them to see if there is a market here. Pricing would be a challenge unless I jump in and make some, but I am busy with pots now, for which I have a market and standing orders.
Just looking for your thoughts.

I dont know how much of a market there would be but the larger one would be interesting to put a tea light in maybe.

It is nowhere large enough for a candle of any kind.
Thank you for your reply.

If you could make them usable with a tea light, I'm sure you can sell some. That does seem like a cool project.....but like you.....I'm up to my neck making pots.
I will take that under advisement ..... it could happen .
But of course it would be to set on the bench and not in the pot. That would be awesome.

Or if not tea lights then maybe rice/fairy lights?
For the record, no way to light is OK with me.
