Final Count

January 6, 2009

OK, so I lied about concentrating this post on the printing process–too much to do!  I can’t seem to make enough time tonight for an actually informative entry, so instead I’m posting some photos and then getting back to work immediately!  I unloaded my final kiln this evening, so I have an approximate final count…  can you guess how many from the photos?
