You have to push to find the limits-once you realize what you can do with the particular clay body you use and climate you live in and firing cycle you are doing you can find many of the preconceived ideas do not hold water anymore. I will add at some point you will find the wall and have to back down the speed-weather drying handling or firing or cooling .
I think most in ceramics baby the work but they can afford to as its not a living. We you find the limits are not where you thought and you will move into another level of production and realize what may be possible .This also applies to other processes as well.
Just when you have it figured out is when the c ceramic gods step in and crush you with a ruined load or bad glaze or bad clay or 10,000 other issues that go sideways-it the nature of ceramics.
