Do you have sales orders to fill with your C6 porcelain? If so, you'll have to wear the expense of firing while you're at the cottage.
If you don't have to think of orders...... then leave the porcelain at home and spend the summer experimenting with all the low fire techniques, clays and processes that you don't get to do normally.....and not just more of the same stuff you already do.
Try raku, black firing, pit and bin firing, local clay slips and engobes, burnishing, hand building. Maybe build a small wood fire kiln and see what happens to your C6 clay and glazes when they're exposed to a live flame.
Make sculpture, wall plaques, ornamental pieces, garden pots (where porosity is a virtue!)
You know......lemons to lemonade. Couple of months, out of town and experimenting with all the techniques and processes you don't normally use......sounds good to me.
