I am finally back in the studio, hand- building. It is 23 degrees and I am snowed in. I won't get back to the wheel until spring.

It is also cold and miserable here and we had a snow storm move in this afternoon. I am fortunate that my studio is attached to my house. I get enough warm air from a house vent to keep it from freezing, I turn on a electric heater in the morning and the shop is warm enough to work in by noon. I thought you had to dry frozen clay and rejuvenate it. It has something to do with the realignment of the clay particles when it freezes. I could be wrong I have never had to deal with it and it has been a long time since I had a clay and glazes class. Denice
It's sunny and hot today, better get to work Gabby!
In fact at 6:30AM I was at my table, carving a border onto a plaque. I have never made anything big and flat, so we will see how it survives. It is going to have an image "painted"in underglazes, including some oranges I am trying. [Now would I have called it hot here today? It was 34'.]
