    Are you going to be making your own molds too, or just getting a feel for the process? Have fun either way!

    I wish you a very good recovery from the sprain. I hope the cat and the view from your studio offer some quality time while you stay off that foot. [I broke a foot a few years ago and was very lucky my dog was a bulldog who wasn't much for long and speedy walks anyway].

    Sorry to hear about your mishap,  I almost fell down a hill backwards my foot got caught on some pavers except for one toe.  It is bent backwards.  I happened to have a foot doctors appointment that week and he said nothing was broken.  This toe still sticks up higher than the rest of my toes.  When these weird mishaps happen to me I prop my leg up on a clay bucket,  pillow and ice in my studio and do some coiling or pinch pots.     Denice

    Glad to hear that you were not hurt too badly.  Hope you got some good peaches to munch on while you sit with your leg up and a little ice on the ankle.

    Sounds like a good suggestion. I'd certainly have more control over my outlines that way.

    It is the main reason why I love ceramics. I mean I love the peacefulness I get from creating things and the meditation it is for my body and brain, but there is nothing like opening a kiln full of beautiful infinity possibilities.

    Before you even start looking at kilns you have some research to do.  Wiring and location to start with and if you have a location will you be living at that location that it would be worth the cost of setting up a kiln.  Sometimes it is cheaper to take a pottery class where you can have work fired when your in limbo.  I  have bought two used kiln and one new test kiln in the last 45 years.   My paragon has finally gotten too old to rebuild and I just rewired my Skutt.   I use a dual digital Skutt thermocouple set up if I want to do any down firing.   Like I said a lot of research to do.   Denice

    I can't imagine the time and work involved in doing a 4 hr round trip every time I wanted to fire pots. The control to fire how you want to, the convenience, glazes not getting dinged in the transport etc would make your life so much easier if you had your own kiln.

    I think it takes a bit of courage to walk away from an invite like that, and I also think that if your gut says it just isn't right for you, then it is probably not the time to be seduced by the offer.
