How much Clay does a Potter Chuck?

The other night I spent an inordinate amount of time browsing through other Potter's blogs. It's great inspiration and affirmation of the art.  Some sites are entertaining, others informative, but either way I got lost in them.  I came across a studio potter  (St Earth Pottery ) that kept track of how many pots he made each year. It generally ranged between 400 and 500 - what a thought to count them? How many do I make in a year?  I figure you can make 25 mugs from a 25lb bag of clay......or one massive table base.
