Chaos.

Today has been silly. This last week or so as I’m getting more and more panicked the place gets more and more chaotic. I start to jig between jobs and not quite get one thing finished before worrying that I should be doing something else so things don’t get tidied away properly or sorted out and I end up like this. I had to half pack the kiln this morning just because I’d run out of boards and space on my racks but before I could do that I had to unpack the glaze firing that has been sat there since sunday ready to unpack but I just haven’t had the time. My desk was full of jugs needing handles so I had to move them before I could put the new pots anywhere. Usually I try to be really organised and the space I have I tend to have to be. Sometimes though it all runs away with me and this is one of those times.

I had pots outside just because I was out of space and it was sunny so they were drying nicely then it belted it down so I had to bring them in but then stood there like a nelly with a heavy board of pots and nowhere to put them.

Anyhoo a few new pots out of the kiln, many of them for orders some from Spring Fling and some for the shop orders I’m working on.

    Hey Hannah! Pots look great. I had to pack the kiln today so I could clear some boards. Liked the video.

    Chaos-is-usIn mathematics, chaos theory describes the behavior of certain dynamical systems – that is, systems whose states evolve with time – that may exhibit dynamics that are highly sensitive to initial conditions (popularly referred to as the butterfly effect). As a result of this sensitivity, which manifests itself as an exponential growth of perturbations in the initial conditions, the behavior of chaotic systems appears to be random. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future dynamics are fully defined by their initial conditions with no random elements involved. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.Chaotic behavior is also observed in natural systems, such as the weather. This may be explained by a chaos-theoretical analysis of a mathematical model of such a system, embodying the laws of physics that are relevant for the natural system.

    You are not alone, I sometimes have 3 or 4 things I'm trying to do at the same time. I know what I'm doing but a customer came in the workshop last week and said " How can you work in such mess?"
