About 6 months ago I decided to build a new studio, the old space was getting too small- and I wanted more light and space. And, after all, we have 3 acres, so the room to build is available. It took a bit longer than I expected- progress was fast while Skip, the guy who knows what he is doing, was on the job. Once he left, and I was on my own, it was a lot slower- it just takes longer when I have to think through every step, while he knows what to do. Anyway, it is slowly but surely getting done. Of course, then I had to build a new kiln shed as well, partly to bring the kiln closer to the new studio- and also to make space for my new raku kiln. So now finally it's ready to use!
