Trivia about the Videos? 

- I've published 193 Videos to Youtube (to date)
- 15 of those videos are glazing & Kiln Opening videos
- 1 hospital visit delay video
- 1 Open Studio tour  & Don Hall's studio
- 1 Steve Booton surprise package opening


Each video takes approximately: 
 
-  2-3 hours to upload
-  45 minutes - 1 hour to editwhich means I've spent....
               
     386-576 hours 
or 16-24 days uploading videos
     144-193 hours  or 6-8 days editing clips


Cup Trivia
 
- Each cup averages 3 1/2" high x 3" wide 
- Before summer I would do most of my throwing between 9:00pm & 12:00pm
- It takes me approximately 5 minutes to throw a cup from beginning to end.
- It takes on average 12 hours to fire & 12 hours to cool each kiln load.

*If you have watched every video in the series up to "Kiln Opening #5"
 You will have watched EXACTLY... 
 30 hours - 30 minutes of video!

If you have been with me since Day #1, Thank you so very much for coming along and sharing your thoughts and ideas..or even if you've been a closet watcher I thank you! If you are just  joing along and wanted to watch every video...you now know EXACTLY how long it will take you to get caught up..LOL! 

This was fun and I'm so glad I sat down to figure out these stats..........it only took me 45 minutes ;)
