Last night it seemed like it was taking me forever to move my greenware from one side of the house to the other so the tile can be laid in the studio this morning. Of course I don't trust anyone else to help me move the greenware. I decided to do a little math.
Moving my greenware from one side of the house takes 38 steps and I made 50 trips. Each trip I took twice. Once to take the piece out of the studio closet and bring it to the master bedroom closet and then return for the next trip. Lets see 38 times two, times 50, equals 3800 steps. Check it out, we're lucky to have a cedar lined closet.
Then I started thinking that's probably how many steps I'll need to make to load the kiln for the bisque firing. Then another 3800 to unload, then another 3800 to load the glaze, then another 3800 to unload the glaze. I didn't count the couple of detours around the cats lying on the floor.
Of course, now that I'm back in the studio all the cats are taking cat naps. Nor did I count the trips to the frig to get some ice water with a splash of cranberry juice. The previous owners of this house left the glass the cranberry splash is in. I might do a whole post on the glass they left here, some are quite interesting and inspirational.
Oh I just realized I need to unload the hall closet too since the tile needs to be laid in there too. So there will be a few more steps moving more greenware. Thank goodness I don't have as many greenware pieces in that closet; it's mostly finished work. I learned there's many steps needed to make ceramics.
