crunch time.

i've finished the exterior of the showroom, my computer is not recognizing my camera so i can't upload the pictures but i'll get them up as soon as a i get a chance. i put up all the sheetrock last night...alone, my back is a wee bit sore(12 foot sheets)! my clay is out of the racks and ready to be made into pots as soon as i finish getting the students glazes ready, i'm way behind getting them glazing as i have way over-extended myself this fall. i plan to mix all(or at least most) of the clay for next semesters classes over the christmas break. i'll have at least twice as many students and several art shows...there i go again with the over-extending. fall sale in less than two weeks, firing in less than three weeks, multiple student firings over the next couple weeks, out of town this weekend for a workshop at my buddy kent's place, welcome to stressville.

Damn! How do you handle 12' drywall alone? Don't tell me. You are working it way hard man. Take care and try not to do too much damage.

Whew! I'm worn out just reading your post. Hope your fall sales are great.

brandon, i'm going to nceca next year for the first time in 8 years. Are you going to be there with your students? What school are you teaching at? Good luck making pots from the couch! Seriously....12 footers? ouch!

"crunch time"...the crunch must have been your back. First you are up on the roof by yourself sans ladder and now 12 footers by yourself. Be careful down there!

Wow! That's a lot of stuff to get done. I envy your drive, though.
