I made six plates today.

bisqued plates

Start to finish, it took me about an hour per plate.  That’s just way too much time.  I love plates, but they’re killing me.  They take so long to make and they’re challenging as hell to get right.

I’m bitching, I suppose, but it really took something out of me mentally to struggle with these things today.  It shakes my confidence.  I mean, who spends half a day working on six plates?  I do, I guess.

I really appreciate the end result, though.  More than any of my other pots, I forget about all the hours that go into each plate when it’s time for lunch and I pull one from the cupboard.  I’ll try to remember that the next time I sit down for another six.  ∆
