Busy, busy

I realized about two weeks ago that I needed 500 of my teeny tiny wobbly bowls to fulfull my current orders (this is my "bread & butter" product that I have been making since the economy took a nose dive)- so I worked basically day and night to get them made in time to ship on the 1st of December. This is the kiln loaded for the bisque fire- they are in stacks of 5+ and a few shelves deep.

Clayworks is having its annual Holiday Sale. We had a nice opening last night and I got to hang out with some clay buddies that I don't get to see all the time. Hopefully today the shoppers will be out in force so I won't have too many pieces to pack up!

I mentioned in my last post- moving into a much smaller home has been quite the adjustment. I am using my second bedroom as a studio, office, packing & shipping area and a craft/painting studio (eventually it will also have to serve as a photography studio for documenting my pieces. Wow, that's a lot of use for one small space!! So I am constantly shuffling things around and then losing track of items-it doesn't help that I am a consumate "pile maker". It was only this morning that I finally found my usb cable for my camera. I have been looking for it since I moved but now that I have it I will try to be better at posting and adding images.

That's a lot of bowls, I know what you mean about piles, I have them all over the place here, there is never enough storage, clay takes so much room.

Your kiln looks like something out of Star Trek of Alien. Little pod eggs waiting to hatch and take over the world.
