Melissa has been so nice to show us her work space, I thought I'd share mine too. When I get uninspired, I tend to try and figure out why, which doesn't really help all that much does it? So then I try and clean up my work space. This is what I'm going to work on this week. Hopefully it will help!
Here's a little bookshelf that my son helped me put together! I use it to hold my tumbler, my small crockpot, extra enameling beads, and various "stuff"!
Under my work table - bottles I use to either melt down and make cheese trays, or break them up to use for recycled bottle beads. The bag is pieces of broken glass leftover from a class I took at the Pittsburgh Glass Center. Goodness, Sue, do something with it...
This used to be a rack that held kid toys - of course it didn't last that long because toys get more numerous and bigger! Now it holds all my presses and pressing tools, frit, murrini, lampworking enamel, shorts, and extra containers that I just can't throw away! Oh yeah, and that little respirator mask too.
My bench - don't really need to explain the mess, do I?
This is a makeshift moveable rack for all my glass. It used to be a bookshelf; there's a handle on the side, there are casters on the bottom and pvc pipe to hold the glass colors. I outgrew this long ago! Hence the vases full of glass on the photo above! On top are my large hole rods, glass, and frit on a lazy susan.
My tv, kiln, and wall where my bead roller tools hang.
Another shelf holding tutorials and books, extra enameling pieces, and more glass and more frit!
More glass on the floor. What????
The window sill - holds old coke bottles and my wonky rods, that I use to make those flowery plant pokes!
The work table, where I have my polymer toaster oven, where I take photos, and various "Junk" that needs to be put away. And more glass....
