As I get ready for surgery, I am faced with a mountain of bisqueware. I have tried for weeks now to get enough pots made to keep this place flush with pots. Tonight, all I saw were pots covered in glaze on every surface in the studio. Now that the boards are all put away, tables cleared,... it's time to fire. Tomorrow our toaster will finish firing and by breakfast it will begin cooling. Monday morning, while everyone else is celebrating Labor Day, we'll be unloading pots, packing pots and getting orders ready to ship out. No rest till the surgeon calls for "lights out".
