Monday there were pots to ship and took up the entire day. I was really happy to be back to clay work on Tuesday. I had mugs to carve and I was getting worried that they may have gotten too dry. I don't like carving dry pots. It's hard on the fingers and not good for the respiratory system.
I had wrapped them well on Sunday and some were still a little too soft. Once unwrapped, the air conditioner took care of that situation quite quickly. This last batch of Highwater clay is soft like baby sh$t. A total pain to throw and even worse for pulling handles. That's why I prefer using our recycled clay. I can get it to the consistency that I like.
