too much solar

img_3807

afternoon sun in the studio at the height of summer is impossible to work in so finally this year I put up a rod and brackets to fling some fabric over …some leftover bits with ties so they can be moved to suit. yesterday afternoon I looked up and the shadows on the ceiling were beautiful…the light bouncing off the small dam down below the studio. back to work!!  The kiln is humming along nicely, a glost firing started at 3.30 this morning in the hope it will mature before the day is too hot? fingers crossed !!
