  1. I am just setting up a studio. I'll be replacing an old wheel and moving into a 13' x 16' space. Pictures would be great!
  2. Cleaning Practices

    My studio is fairly new...so I'm trying really hard to clean at the end of my day. That includes wiping things down with wet sponges and mopping the floor. I read a blog not so long ago when the pottery said she finds it difficult to enter a dirty studio and feel inspired. I sort of feel the same and besides, I am a messy potter so leaving things would be a disaster! I've been taking classes but everything was full this semester. Not having access to the university’s equipment I have been slowly setting up a studio adding what I need as I need it. I've started to reclaim clay. I expected it to "sour†but I’ve got a ball of clay that is almost black. My question is will this discoloration dissipate as things go along? Hello T ll, any discoloration left after the clay dries, will burn out when fired. Thanks Matt, I thought I was to add bleach or something.
