summer heat

I have been drawing lots of designs for my pots over the last few days as my studio is way too hot to go into at the moment. We are in a heat wave and it is currently 40 degrees at 5:00pm! I have a kiln packed and ready to go but because of the heat I cannot safely fire it to 1300 degrees, especially because I share my studio with quite a few hay bales.. So drawing pots is all I can do. I look at the mountain ash gum trees which are on our property for inspiration. These are around our dam, and were spared in the Black Saturday fires in 2009. Basically there isn’t much you can do on days like this but watch the CFA site for fires where we live. The joys of country and mountain living!
