I've been making a lot of pots in recent weeks. In my world, a LOT. At least 30 or 40 a week. Plus Christmas tree decorations. I'm pleased with those production rates, but due to shop or gallery consignments or pre-orders this stock seems to be disappearing into a black hole. Yesterday I found myself excited at the prospect of having at least 10 festive pourers and wine cups in stock, only to realise that I should use them to fulfil a promise to a gallery and pop up shop. Please don't read this as a complaint - I'm deeply grateful for the demand of my work - I'm simply thinking out loud (er, in type) about one aspect of my production process.
