well after crashing some mugs and reading about productivity, yesterday while studio sitting threw 7 mugs with handles (for the record ihave made kept less than a dozen handles, me no like) about 10 trinket dishes, and 2 medium plates. looking at others' shelves i was productive.... (but not at production potter level)

    I don't know how long you've been at this but don't compare yourself to high production potters.

    Whenever I do that I feel like a huge failure but the truth is I don't enjoy that kind of work anyway. I like working in batches of 2-6.

    Hope that came across as encouraging, not rude. Was meant to be encouraging.

    Big: throwing, dropping, fumbling stumbling: it all produces art.

    Hi, haven't made in awhile buts yes still making, never used mark and daves .... Who makes that.... It's been about a year since throwing porcelain, I had it figured out second day....clay was too wet day one. And it took a day for "it" to click....... I'm throwing a modified Cushing/Galloway body.

    Dang right, you are! :) Just start small. Overburdening oneself from commissions will make you crazy! :)
