I always wanted to place a sign in the shop saying cation Potter bites.
The other sign I never made was, wake me when you want to buy something.
We found that on Saturdays if we sat in the shop while waiting for and waiting on customers we would fall asleep.
This had nothing to do with the customers and more to do with sitting still.
We move so much that we found when we sit still our eyes get heavy.
Yesterday I was able to creep up on a certain potter and take some pictures.
I need a camera that makes less noise ...since I was caught very quickly. Here is what I was able to get with the request of no head shots please.I am throwing in the please I really don't remember it being used!
About the clean studio space.
We are rather clean in our spaces but we have times when we are all over the place and rather messy.
We found early in our potter lives that we both needed things to be cleaned on a regular basis.
We both were trained to clean our spaces, wheels and tools at the end of the day.
The reason was that another student would be using your space when you left for the day.
Now it is nice because it helps to go into the studio and have your wheel waiting for you.
When it is not cold out I like to dump and have fresh water and a clean wheel.
Now you are wondering if this carries over to our house.
Come on people- you can write your name in the dust- we do clean our house - but not every day!
We spend most of our time in the studio.
Also- when we had the fire we tossed out 26 years of things- or the fire ate them.
I am still amazed at how much space we gained after the fire.
I don't recommend cleaning that way but for us it was a help to rid ourselves of some of the clutter.
We still have not covered the walls and I have some wall space I would like to cover.
Our son gave us world maps to replace the ones burnt up but I still have not put them up.
Maybe this weekend would be good!
Time to go spend too much time getting those contacts in my eyes.
