If you can fry an egg on the sidewalk, I wonder if you can bisque clay on my patio? It's hot. Really hot. Really, Really, Really hot. lest you think I'm complaining, let me clarify: I'm whining and being ungrateful. I'm whining along with everyone else here. Let's face it--when the heat index exceeds 110, even the most staunch "Minnesota nice" melts! I'm being ungrateful (even though I have an air conditioner), because my clay won't dry. Many people up here don't even have an air conditioner. In the deep winter, I fuss that my clay won't dry because the cold inhibits the evaporation of moisture from my work. Right now the work won't dry because of the absurdly high humidity level! I moved up here to get away from that weather junk! It found me this week.
I loaded the kiln yesterday for a bisque fire. I also created several new pieces, so in theory I should be able to turn around and do a second bisque fire immediately. The theory then says that I should be able to do back to back glaze fires before I have to load up my studio and kiln and move to my new home location. Yep. I'm moving. In a couple of weeks. To a Yurt, on a farm. Sound Artsy enough for ya?! Like I said in the title, Never a dull moment!
