Another round of ice, sleet, and snow...nothing like the hammering that is going on in the Northeast, but I reserve the right to whine when my studio is too chilly for clay work.

    We have the same weather. I could heat up my shop, I wouldn't work much today I have a bad cold. So I'll just save on my electric bill.

    It's in the 50s and sunny today. I'd be a very happy rodent if it was like this 365 days a year, hehe! ^_^

    *begin whine* Belmont University is closed for a second day in a row...there have been only 3 (maybe 4) closures in the last 15 years before these two days. It is truly N.A.S.T.Y. to get around walking or driving.*end whine*

Working with clay has made me a hoarder. I am always thinking, I could use that in the studio, or I could make a tool out of that and I don't throw it away.

    I am often asked why I didn't build a larger studio. I tell them I would just fill it with racks, and things that could be made into a tools.

    My husband has given up trying to guess what is a potential art supply. It is OK to see possibilities for use with clay.

    This is totally true. I sit on a tilt back never hurts, and I have a bad back.

    im about to start so I re-set my chair to where im on a tilt and sat in it and cleaned the wheel real good.. I like how it feels, there is no awkward pressure anywhere..

My year of throwing mugs and making handles is going well so far. I think I like making mugs more than bowls. = )

    Neat video High Bridge! Although I'd like it when people talk in their video... You could comment. You know what? I thought you were middle age, reading your comments here. Don't know why. Thank you for sharing! Tried to post a comment on YT but couldn't...

    Thank you :D I am working towards maybe doing commentary but I only have the rubbish microphone on my camera. Researching into sound set ups is on my to-do. Yes I am only 24 :D hopefully plenty of years left to keep learning.

    A day off for rest is a good thing...but think how that clay feels: abandoned, missing the human touch, unwanted (is guilt working?) :)

    Yes, I lovingly fondled the clay for 5 hours today, not in a dirty way....well the clay was dirty but...you know what I mean

It is nice enough in the studio today that I have the outside door open...and I can mop without fear of creating an ice rink! :)
