Today's efforts

Since I am still not feeling well, today has been pretty tough, but I feel pretty good that I got some things done regardless.

I threw these goblet parts and these small bottles. Soon I'll be able to unload this kiln and get at the stuff I wanted to get at :)

I had Morgan set up a table, put out all the pots we have in totes, inventory them and pack them up again. I'll be shipping those off to Jessa for this upcoming weekend. Thankfully we have 2 shows this weekend. we've had quite a dry spell lately. Then the next weekend is our home sale, which I am hoping will be amazing as we have a lot of catching up to do.

The most difficult part of being a potter

People can say a lot of things about how difficult it is to be a self-employed potter. The complaints range from becoming established, maintaining creativity, finding good shows, irregular pay, having to do ALL the parts of a job from manufacture to marketing.

The worst and most difficult to me is waiting for the damn kiln to cool so I can get at my stuff!
