whole family together for Spring break and help with unpacking and arranging house things.
was throwing today in my new studio. Yay! Now I am waiting for the electric company to hook up the power. But I will be ready with kiln loads of pots. POR FIN!!!
got the shop lights installed today. All but one. missing hardware. But the light is great.
worked on the studio 'til 9 last night. A bit achy today. Made the cart for my slabs while working on the slab roller. One overhead storage can get done when my husband comes up over Spring break. I don't want to do it while no one is around..just in case I fall off a ladder. So maybe I'll throw some saggars today.

yesterday was 57 but warmer in the sun. I cut up sheet rock out the back of my van for my slabs
the electrician came today and installed the meter for new service to the kiln shed 200 amp meter. Plus a panel box inside. My big oval will be direct wired to the panel and plugs for the 2 smaller kilns. The energy company is next to approve the wiring, then the electrician comes back for the wiring to the kilns. Signed up for a wood firing at the Red Lodge clay center in April. I can bisque soon.
Got a three shelf storage and counter top done today. It is starting to get cleaner and more organized every day. I can start making things soon. Got Clay!
got the last pegboard up. Mounted my extruder. Dropped off boxes, plastic and metal at recycling. had some water leak into the kiln shed floor. Snow mounds are still melting a lot. I think I will solve that problems as soon as it warms up.
got my last heater installed. My studio feels great. No noise, drafts, just warm air. Clay won't freeze unless I lose power. And I have a kerosene heater to back it up.
Having a great weekend around Yellowstone Park. saw a wolf stalking an elk, Lots of wildlife and gorgeous skies, rock/thermal formations. LOts of snow, wind and sun.

I mixed clay today! Picked up dry clays about 11, did errands, and started mixing about 1 pm while the sun was warm . Cold front is coming in tonight. Beat it! So happy. Mixed about 270 pounds wet. That should be a good start. This batch is for making new saggers. I didn't bring many with me. My birthday is Wed. so I can celebrate by doing some throwing. Kilns will be getting wired in Mid- February.
