I am in the middle of teaching a week-long workshop at my studio. We are also in the middle of a heat wave here in New England. Today was a real scorcher at 100 degrees, so at the end of our day we walked down to the river behind my studio to a favorite swimming hole. The Green River is rightfully named that because of the green clay found throughout the river. The water is such a gorgeous color green because of the light green color of the clay. My students gave themselves facials with the bentonite-like clay, and floated happily in the mineral soft water. They want to go back tomorrow at the end of our day, hopefully I’ll remember to bring a camera.
