It’s been a few months since I last updated my blog. As usual it’s been a very busy time with plenty of work to be getting on with and not a lot of time for sitting and reflecting and well….. catching up!
From the minute we finished the studio and I was able to move in it’s been non-stop so I haven’t been able to show you round so to speak. I love seeing other artist’s workspaces so I nipped out and took a few photos to show you just how it is – no tidying, just how it is in all its chaos. Oh dear I feel ashamed but then it is a working studio not a showroom!
So what you can see – along the back wall I have racking containing finished work, drying pots, decorated work awaiting Raku firing and my moulds. Next to the racks is my very useful casting table. It’s a good height and nice to work at, much better than a normal desk or table. Along the front I have my work bench and this is where I spend most of my time. The windows overlook the garden and the field (along with resident cattle!). At the far end I have a Shimpo wheel which is now accessible and which I am determined to start using regularly. So out of all this untidiness comes some good work I hope. This is the challenge, this is what I strive to do, this is the fun!
Here are some recent pieces.
