A good start
The plan was to be up by 8 and to the studio by 9. The plan for today was to make 75 items, perhaps 100, pack some things deliver them to the post office and have some ware boards cut. I can report partial success.
I was up by 9 and to the studio by 11:30.
I made 71 pieces
The new ware boards are in use :) The old ones held two rows of Tankards, that's 40lbs of clay on a 10lb board and I always put them up on the top shelf (like in this picture) The new ones are on the bottom left. hold 1/2 as much, but are much easier to move around. I am pleased, and there are enough I won't run out of ware boards until after my shelves are overflowing with pieces.
Tomorrow I'm going to aim for up by 8 and into the studio by 9 again. The pieces under the plastic are practically ready to trim now. If I hadn't covered them the rims would already be bone dry. Not bad for throwing them between 11:30 and 2PM.
