Yes, you read that right...a fruit basket upset. It's a term I grew up hearing from my mother. Anytime the furniture in a room got rearranged, it was a "fruit basket upset". I've been making due with my old studio set up because I thought we would be moving this summer and didn't want to do the extra work. The way life has it, we will be staying in our current location for another year, so I decided to better my studio. It was functional before...but as my sales increased and the business grew...and my health deteriorated, I can no longer throw. 99% of my work is now handbuilt from slabs of clay. So the wheel (sadly) has just been collecting dust, and the studio was getting cluttered. It took me 4 days..but I finally have it done...and I love it! SO much more user friendly! Here is what it used to look like:
And here it is now!
Now maybe I can get some work done!
What do ya think? How is your studio/creative space? What does or doesn't work for you? How have you made it your own?
