I found the heat and dripping with more sweat than I ever knew was possible to be really incapacitating. I hate dripping on a piece of burnishing terra sig while loading. It stains the surface. I love cold weather,, fresh mountain air and crispy clean light on the mountains.I can see the stars again. In deep South Texas it is too humid to see many stars

Using a kerosene heater while I arrange my studio. The electrician came today to check out the kiln shed for a new meter...No longer Waiting For the Electrician!

Direct from the pole/transformer in the alley next to the shed.
I am arranging the studio and put the wedging table by the window with the wheel next to that and the wall heater near the wheel. From my stool at the wheel I can see the ski runs on Red Lodge Mountain. So happy with our relocation Back in Montana!!! Getting greetings from former students. Invitations to Feb. Art Walk. I am so happy to be home.

getting settled in isn't that sought to do. So excited to have the electrician working on it . I am thinking of mixing some clay in my soldier mixer and start with raku clay to make daggers and slabs.

Looking forward to being operational again.Planning to get some clay soon,.

Looks like a magical place.

 

This might be a little late for this. The last shop I built I had power lines with outlets dropped from the ceiling for equipment. It was a great way to keep power cords off the floor

I have outlets in the ceiling and four around three sides. The orange one was for my drill as I put holes in the ceiling for the lights.

Thanks though.
