My production output has increased dramatically in the last year or so. Among other things, I need to make a lot more dinner plates. Plates are cumbersome to dry, because they need so much footprint space. Once they are bone dry, I can stack them four high, which makes them efficient again. But during those drying days, they are a pain. I thought I needed to add more shelving to my studio, just to accommodate the drying plates. I didn't want more furniture, because I think the layout and flow of my studio is pretty darn perfect already. Also, I don't make plates every day. I make them every few weeks, and then I'll crank out a few dozen at a time. Therefore, a permanent change in furniture didn't make sense. The right solution hit me with an "aha!" My spacious studio already contained the answer. When you have a studio all to yourself, you can use the floor for drying plates.
