Can I store bisqueware in an unheated space?
Question: I have a small studio, and am a production potter. My unheated barn is on the other side of my studio door, and there is available shelving out there. I live in Maine, so winter temps are frequently below freezing.
Answer: Great question. The answer is YES. Because the bisque ware has had the water fired out of it you can safely store it even at below freezing temperatures. I would recommend letting it warm back up to room temperature before glazing it, though.
Oh, and just in case others are reading this and are wondering, I wouldn't recommend trying this with greenware. It still does have moisture in it and could crack if it froze.
Thanks for visiting,
PS - I'd love to see pics of your work. Did you know you can create a free artists page on this site? Check it out at Pottery Artist Listings.
