The weather at the moment is very very cold, if you havnt got the fire going you wouldnt be able to bend your fingers!!!  I know I know it s not like we have snow and below zero temperatures but for us South-Westers its COLD.  My workshop is to cold to go into early so I have to wait till midmorning and then my hands are to cold to work the clay.  But I’m taking this opportunity to get other jobs done.
