The Studio...

So far the moving, moving and more moving of my studio art and equipment has been a smooth but long process. We're currently looking into damp damage from the flood a couple of years ago, I am hopeful but not certain that there will be a good bill of health for what lies beneath the surface or the exterior garage wall. After some insulating the space is going to be super functional as a studio/display space. And you never know there could be a spring sale to kick start the new venture!

So a few pics along the way...

The beginning of the new studio
Barely moving in here!
Pot smashing!!
 


The old Fridge is out, complete with big fruit Rat
Just some of the timber for the pit
And then there's this years social event... 'Big Clay Day 18' which in fact was 'The Big Pit Fire' this years mini event keeping the fires burning literally on this major event with a very successful day. The fire looked fabulous and kept us all warm after a very chilly 0 deg C start to the day!! We kept this one small being on a friends property but hopefully next time we can do something larger again. Lots of 'irons in the fire' at the mo with some new locations scouted and thoughts of something akin to the early years of The Big Clay Day are afoot!





 Nearing end of the day after the troops had gone home, Kev and I waited for the coals to cook down then we narrowed the fire into the central pit and covered with tin for the slow burn throughout this week. Come this weekend we're back again to open up the ashes and reveal some toasty pots we hope...

End of the day with clear skies and a toasty pit
