My usual plan for Jan and Feb involves making a bunch of bisqueware, hopefully enough to take the pressure off this summer and fall when I am doing shows. I am a load or two behind with firing but basically I'm on track. I did get into a bunch of clay that was too wet to make jars and vases with so I switched and started making plates. Soft clay, warm water and blues on the radio helped a dozen or so jump off the wheel yesterday. They are sitting on every available flat space until they get dry enough to trim which should be tomorrow. Then it will be time to make another batch. Some people don't like to make plates. One of the best potters I know confided once that she couldn't make a plate to save her life. I like making them and I love selling them. People may buy one mug and never come back. If they buy a plate, I know I will see them again and again !
Here are a couple of studio shots and a video of the first song I felt like singing after being sick.
