Working half days

There's an old joke about working half days when you work for yourself - you even get to choose which 12 hours of the day you work. I'm living that right now! So much for getting a bit more sleep now that I've quit the day job. I have a really big event coming up on Friday (more about that later) and have been making, making, making. The photo shows only some of what I've been doing. The gray pieces on the left are finished but unfired clay - they are in the kiln right now. The bright silver pieces have just come out of the kiln, and the black pieces are fired, finished a bit and oxidized and are waiting final finishing. There's still more to make. I guess I better make some coffee and get to work!

wow! That's impressive. I know the amount of time that goes into that many pieces. I'm assuming you still have to add concrete to a lot of those too. Remember to stretch out your arms and fingers, seriously. I have started to have some major issues with my wrist because of the small repetitive work. Just giving you a heads up (even though you've been making a lot of jewelry for a while now) good luck!
