Wet Basements

The pots are still too wet. Not all of them, but a majority. I trimmed a little wetter than I wanted to and that seemed to work out OK, but I just can't assemble the goblets or pull handles yet. The rims are still too flexible. I got a few done, turned on a fan, pointed it away from the pieces just so air would flow in the room. I lightly covered the rest of the pieces and in the morning I plan on uncovering everything and turning on the dehumidifier so as I work through the dryer pieces the wetter pieces will start to stiffen become less flexible.

What I really want to do is get started throwing the next round of tankards and mugs, but everything must be done in it's own time.

  1. looks like we have opposite problems! i'm in a high desert area, it's so darn dry here i can often throw and trim in the same day. of course w/ my work schedule being what it is that is a real problem sometimes. can't remember how many pieces i've trashed because they were bone dry and not trimmed or anything. i also have a good collection of tumblers that didn't start out being tumblers lol.
