Just finished throwing an order for 20 triangular shaped bowls. They are to be used as centerpieces for a luncheon. As per standard operating procedure for custom orders, I have made extra - 4 or 20%. Custom orders always have some issue so it's better to over throw and prepare for the accidents that can occur. Of course when I am just making things with no specific order in the pipeline - nothing goes wrong. These pots are not near the end of their journey. Bisque - Prep- Glaze - Re-Fire - Pack and deliver.

The dangers that lie ahead.
- one or two might yield a crack
- could drop one loading into the kiln
- glaze job gets messed up
- general kiln god sacrifices
