I've talked to people today who still try to produce 10,000 lbs of " Production" based on this sort of stats.

Production is a tricky animal based on some constants and they include demand. .
I like the saying -
The dog who never leaves the porch will find no bones.

Since we moved our studio, demand in our work has exploded and we had to hire some help. Blowing glass with 3 people is how I learned and is incredibly efficient compared to blowing solo , which in my opinion is really only viable if you have a home studio and are making high end vessels.
