    <p> I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, right next to the Tahoe National Forest. We do get snow up here, but not a whole lot. Lots of freezing tho. You must be more in central or southern or along the coast, if my guess is right. I appreciate your information and advice. I use stoneware clay body, BMX with grog, cone 5 and it does hold up nicely, but I have not kept it outside in the winter months. I have been asked to do a large garden sculpture so I want to make sure it will withstand temperature changes, because it is unlikely that it will be easily moved. She does live in Sacramento where the temperatures are not so extreme, so maybe it is not a problem after all. Anyway, your comments give me more confidence in making an outdoor sculpture. Thank you. <br><br><br><br> <br><br><br></p><p> <br><br><br> </p>

    Thank you, Marcia. This information is very useful. I didn't know that freeze proof or frost resistant clay existed. I will check out the link. Linda
  5. I am looking for information regarding the making of ceramic garden art/sculptures in terms of the clay body and firing temp to use as well as any suggestions for sealing them to minimize affects of weather changes. Also, I would like to know what, if any, books or DVDs are available offering instructions and projects for making various garden art and sculptures. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide regarding this topic.
