CV:19 and Clay Printing at Home

I am one of the many vulnerable folks out there who must try not to get the Corona Virus due to an existing lung condition. So, like so many others, I am sheltering at home. While my heart is heavy for all who are suffering from this terrible pandemic for all the obvious reasons, I am having guilty pleasure in finding so much unstructured free time.

I was missing my local Clay Studio and our 3D Potterbot Scara V4 , and I had an inescapable urge. Why not order a smaller 3D Potterbot 9 Pro for my house while I hide from the virus and everyone else (but cute hubby)?

I got permission from the aforementioned cute hub to transform our not-to-be-used-anytime-soon dining room into a temporary clay printing studio! The printer is on the far left of the table—it fits in quite nicely with our paperclip lamp and UFO painting, don’t you think? I have already gone through one tube of clay, and you can count all the little 3D printed vessels on the canvas-covered part of the table as my first day’s efforts.

Anyway, I am in heaven with so much time to learn and experiment. Wait for future blog posts where I will share what happens in the “room where it happens.”

I have a feeling this dining room might remain a home pottery studio even after these times are over 😊❤️🥰

Hoping to have a real home studio in the new house. Who knows what the future will bring at this point. Just focused on staying healthy, and learning new stuff! Sending love!

Hi Jill – I don’t have a kiln at home so they will have to wait for firing. The good news is the longer they wait, the stronger they will be. My mom is doing so great. It’s hard for her to be isolated, but we talk daily – thanks for reaching out.
