Like most of Europe, the Netherlands are suffering from a heat wave and massive drought. I’ve put aluminium foil on the inside of all windows, keep them open during the night and close them in the morning to keep the cool air in, but it still reaches about 30 °C/ 86 °F in my work room.
The dry air is excellent for casting, but unfortunately, the heat isn’t. Working is difficult when the thoughts are being cooked out of your skull, and casting & mould making are things I need my full attention for.
I’ve adapted my work & sleep schedule so I can work in the early mornings and late at night, with short periods of sleep in between, but it still takes a toll.
Things should be better next week.Blog Post Heat Wave
