Another opportunity the reorg offers is to see what uses I need, that I haven't accounted for, and to what I have accorded too much space. I usually work in an orderly make/fire rhythm: make enough to fill the kiln, bisque, glaze, fire. My greenware shelves can therefore double for bisqueware waiting to be glazed. But it's January, and I am in no hurry to fire in the miserable snow and cold - although I will eventually have to - so I keep making, though my greenware shelves are full. I can add about 30% more space to these with 2 half-cinderblocks and a plank: make it so, right?
I also notice that though I have two six-foot-tall, three-foot-wide shelving units beside the wheel to hold wetware, I never, never, never, ever fill up even one of these units. Even during 100 mugs in 100 hours project, I didn't come close to needing all of my wetware space. Some of my alterations - stamping, ovalling, stretching, darting - need to be done while the ware is still quite wet, so I tend to break up the work into shorter bursts: throw for a few hours, then stop to alter and decorate. I never throw more than I can finish in the next couple of days. Some of the space alloted to wetware can go to some other purpose; like maybe housing the bisqueware that doesn't fit into each glaze firing,that piles up until there is enoughto fill its own firing.
The Potter's Encyclopedia, of Color, Form, and Decoration, a delightful book that I used to just lay around and page through the way other people read travel books. Like meeting an old friend by chance!
Anyway. There's still lots to do, so I'd best finish my coffee before it gets cold, and get to it.
