Nearing Final Studio Overhaul

After glazing some orders and firing my kiln, I continued with my studio overhaul.

I had this back area piled with newspapers and containers of dry mixed glazes from my college years (13-15+ years ago). Time to get those put away.

I’m actually going to look at my old notes and see what kind of glazes these are. All base glazes as I remember. I have plenty of ingredients for color variations if I like them for my current work.

This dead storage space is now transformed into a small crafty corner…

I pulled out a lot of my arts and crafts supplies and fully intend in teaching myself and the kids how to use them.

For these kids – never too many cheap brushes to experiment with. Although I think when we get into serious lessons – limiting brushes to get more out if them will be fun. But for now – this works for experimenting!

We LOVE glitter here! And Chloe is going to be the glue and glitter glob master soon…

I was SO excited for her to get home from school to see this new part of the studio…

And once she got down here, she didn’t want to leave!

And of course – little brother wanted to create too. There is plenty if room for two (no fighting please!!!). Ugh – studio mates – lol…

And Dave put my kick wheel together for the third and hopefully last time for a long while (the two other times were in previous houses). Hope I get to use it this time!

Just freaking beautiful! I cannot wait to get lost throwing on it…

And now – instead of seeing piles of crap I need to go through – I see creative potential and joy…

Now to finish purging some piles, then start to mix and pug all of that clay. I really need to also get my website & Etsy shop updated. It is in fact "that time of the year"…

What a wonderful journey this has been getting my studio and head space clear!!!
