Today winter sent us another storm. That makes it day two. The Rog has been home from school both days and tracks in and out bringing wood, shoveling snow, listening to the weather condition reports. Me? I am in the studio throwing cylinders to make mugs. From there I trot the cylinder to the microwave--yes you read correctly. I nuke my cylinders. A 1 pound cylinder stays in for 66 seconds at 40% power. After a cool down and maybe another zap. The cylinder can be trimmed and finished with handle.
I guess this means I'm microwave dependent.
