Quick studio tour















You can click to enlarge any of these images. The studio is located in a former veterinary hospital. I didn't change the floor plan, just worked with the existing rooms. My husband is a veterinarian and his office was here from 1987 to 2002, so I still refer to the front as the reception area, the handbuilding area is in former treatment and surgery and my throwing area is back where grooming and boarding used to be. It's been great to have all the space and I feel guilty sometimes that I have filled it all up with work or workspaces. Then other times I just enjoy it and think how hard I have worked to make it happen.
Going in soon to work more on the Australian series of work.

Very nice tour. But we're gonna have to buy you a tripod to hook your camera up to! ;-)

Great studio and gallery space!

Wow, I am envious, you have created a warm and inviting place. Do you have a big sign out front somewhere with your pottery name on it? by the road?

I am almost ashamed to admit it, Michael, but I do have a tripod. Sometimes the idea outstrips the technique with me, and it takes me a few times to get it all together! To my 50+ year old eyes, they all looked in focus in that darn little camera screen....
Linda, I do have a big sign that says POTTERY right by the road. However, we have a directional sign with the animal hospital's name on it as well(since my husband built a new building in the block behind the old vet hospital)and I am still getting folks walking in with their pets. But the vet hospital has been moved for almost 7 years. They all look slightly confused when they see all the pottery.
