I 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.
