  1. Firing my first bisque in my new kiln shed. Wiring happened today. Loaded late this afternoon and firing a tube stacked load for the wood firing happening next week. Each person is allocated 18 cu. ft in the train kiln.

  2. Got rid of 2 rubbermaid storage containers of porcelain, plus boxed raku clay and Armadillo porcelain. I have clay waiting for me in red Lodge, so I don't need to take more 1800 miles. Moving sucks.

      We moved 10 years ago, moved all of the boxes, clothes and small stuff ourselves. Hired mover for the large stuff. We had a 3 story house plus a basement where my studio was located. Best money ever spent.

  4. in Texas for4 days to estimate what will be needed to final move to Montana. 2 pallets of clay and chemicals. I want to keep my G200 , F-4, Custer, and gerstley borate. Some of the rest will go to the university here.

      If the GB is the original before they started blending it: certainly worth keeping.

      You lucky dog, my son asked us to get rid of extra stuff around the house, he didn't want to deal with it when we died.

  10. 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.

  12. yesterday was 57 but warmer in the sun. Worked outside cutting up sheet rock out the back of my van for my slabs. Much easier to move smaller pieces around.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

      A few strategically located surface collectors should do the job.

  17. 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.

      Gratz! I am loving that winter is almost over here. Can't wait to pot in the spring. Cool nights and warm days.

      I am loving my heaters. Just a comfortable temperature for working. Clay not freezing.

       

  18. 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.

      Yellowstone in Winter with so few people around is indescribable. I remember seeing 2 elk standing in the run off of a hot pool. They were covered with icicles and shrouded in steam coming off the hot water....so beatiful..

      I posted photos on my Facebook page. Back home and relaxed with lots of inspirations.

      I remember Yellowstone from my last visit- 2003.

  19. 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.

  21. Love being in Montana. Day break is beautiful when the sun first hits the tops of the mountains. Picking up dry clay today in town (how lucky to be near a supplier) then wet clay on Friday at Archie Bray in Helena. Getting closer to operating.

  23. picking up clay tomorrow. Wish I could have picked it up yesterday and mixed it today in a balmy 51 F.

      Where are you getting your clay these days?

      I am picking enough up for a batch of raku from the red Lodge Clay Center. However, it seems to be 25% higher than the Bray prices. And they don't publish their prices. They said they don't publish them because they are so low. Not the case.

      I am going to be in Helena at the Bray on friday and will pick up more there.

       

  24. Today is work on taxes day, clean house, flatten boxes for storage and take things to recycling, groceries on the way home. Would love to put up shelves and install another heat panel this weekend.

      At least your keeping on track. I caught my husbands head cold and it turned into a ear infection. All I do is sleep.

  25. perils of moving into a used house. It took 3 city water dept. guys 2 hours to find the turn off valve for the water system as a pipe was leaking from being frozen. They found the meter and the turn off valve behind a built in structure in the basement. So much for working on organizing the studio. Plumber comes tomorrow. One guy was the former mayor.

      enjoying solving problems of arranging chemicals today. Removed a shelf under a counter and can store all the large chemical bins that are here and not in Tx.
