100 Mug Challenge

July 24, 2018

I forgot that I had a blog and figure that I should try to use it a little more often.  I have been really bad about making pottery this year.  We had some a stellar year last year and after it warmed up I just couldn't get motivated to make much.  


Well I decided that I needed a goal and something to work towards.  Right now that thing is making 100 mugs.  And nothing else until that happens.  Well almost nothing... I am going to make some pints since we have a deadline for consignment and I dont want to miss out on making stuff that is requested.  Make what people want to buy I say.  


So far I am at 73 left to go.  I had made 10 and then did a batch of 17 mugs on Sunday the 22nd.  I started at noon and had them handled at 7:30.  That included a few hours worth of break time.  I feel like with a goal it will be easier for me to get downstairs and get some stuff made.  I already have my next goal set, as soon as I have my 100 mugs done I am going to make 100 more.  We are planning on firing a big wood kiln with John Thomas as Dunn County Pottery.  So we need a lot of pots to fill all that space in the chamber.  Im sure we will post more when that time comes in October.
