  1. Hi all, Last month I did a little test of how 'efficiently' I throw/decorate a mug and today I posted the results and images on my blog, also copied below: Between 3-5 mins to wedge Between 13-15 mins to throw a mug 10 mins for turning 5 minutes to pull the handle and attach 5 minutes for cleanup Bisque firing 5 mins of sanding to make them 'closer' to my desired finish (i.e. smooth, no throwing lines) 15-30 minutes decorating - I tried out a sample pack of Japanese tissue transfers and added some trailed underglaze for definition 10 minutes for glazing and glaze cleanup (e.g. bottoms) Glaze firing In total? between 66-85 minutes per mug. Eeek! I should state upfront that I am new to ceramics so I don't look completely moronic So - what I am interested in understanding from everyone are some 'industry baselines' for making a mug - i.e. how long does it take you (understanding of course everyone's creation/decoration techniques are different and thus have different 'time investments')...?
