5 Good Hours

IMG_2154I had 5 hours of wet clay time in the studio today.  Sometimes 5 focused hours can be more productive than 8 hrs of mucking around.  I happy with what I got made.  The plan is to make as much as I can today and tomorrow and then play catch up (chasing plastic).


Getting the clay prepped takes up a good amount of time. In the old days a 'ball boy' would have balled the clay and brought it to the wheel for the thrower.  Of course I'm a one man operation so I don't have that luxury.  Below is clay prepped for plates and mugs that I'll make in the morning.
