In the Swing…

It has been a productive week. My daughter is off at school from 8:30 to 2:45, which has felt like a huge block of time! I can make a lot of pots in 6 hours. Here are some images I took today.


I threw 31 mugs this morning.


Ware rack with pots drying by the wood stove.


18 plates to be trimmed and squared tomorrow.


Clay weighed and wedged to throw tomorrow. These are 4 lb balls that will be bowls.

I find it helpful to decide what I’ll do first the following day. Like today I wedged for bowls tomorrow. It keeps me from walking in circles when I first get to work.

Thanks for reading.



I used to keep index cards on hand and write down what needed to be done the next day. It was very helpful and then checked off the tasks when completed. I used to be sorta organized!
