the other day how he had froze his pots. Well my wee studio is heated with two small oil filled electric heaters. I keeps it from freezing but it is cold to work in unless I fire a bisque kiln during the night. What happens in the studio in the cold is the rims of my pots dry super quick. I usually attach the handles from the rim and end up loosing a over a third of them. So Dan thanks for your dumb ass post. I attached some little one finger handles away from the rim to cut the odds.
