Here is the condition of my workshop after about 2 months of working. The square plate weighs in at about 12 kilos, measures 40 cm. square. I have about 300 kilos of clay I want to use up as quickly as possible and decided to do these large, heavy plates.

The picture of the collapsed wood deck is what happens when you stack about a ton of clay on a deck not built to hold that much. It partially collapsed and then had total failure within a couple of days.

I am planning a firing for the beginning of October.
