Maria E Posted July 2, 2022 Report Share Posted July 2, 2022 Potters in the Midwest, I need advice! I am planning to build a studio in SW Ohio. My present studio is an old, shaded, unheated greenhouse in northern California, near the ocean and I have never lived, let alone potted, in a climate like the Midwest. The climate here stays between 40 and 60 degrees most of the time, and the humidity tends to average around 75%. I know that letting a studio get below freezing is bad for ware that hasn't been bisqued yet and messes with kiln controls, but that is as far as my knowledge goes. What do I need to consider? How warm should I plan on keeping the space if I want work to dry within a reasonable amount of time (say, 2 days)? What about the summer? How does the humidity and heat affect pottery (and potters)? What else should I consider? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
