I have the firing schedule in place so I know how many of which shape will go in when. I am on the third glaze firing and the fifth bisque. When I work on the schedule I still have to remind myself that I work on it based on the reality and not on hopes. It is not a wish list; I need a reliable plan so once it's made all I do it to follow it not having to worry about it. It gives me a room to think about something else like the future projects and ideas. One of the things I am becoming more interested is visual image making and I've been working on a few ideas that I can build.
