a rephrase of the quirey to see if it makes a difference
You seem to have misunderstood my missive, and my meaning...
Lets try again?
How many 'good' Mugs, (meaning Mugs that you owuld think of as 'good', ) do
you feel, can be the goal, for a Journeyman Potter to make, in one week, so
that they are all finished and ready to Market, when the week is dedicated
only to making Mugs?
It can even be a 'hard' week say, just to get them 'done'...so that part of
one's inventory is satisfied for some time.
That was the salient component of my question.
That was the actual subject.
