The basement studio

I have finally succeeded in making the basement into a cozy working space. It has taken awhile to do this, but it now feels like a space I want to work in. Of course I would rather have nice big windows with a lot of natural light, but we all have to make it work with what is at hand. I am grateful for the abundant space available, and the strong and sturdy work tables. Busy days in the studio, and I will post some finished work soon, but in the meantime here are some studio shots of how things look to date. I now have a separate glazing area on the other side of the wall. This was the biggest change I recently made to the space and has made a huge difference. I think having all the dry glaze materials in the working space was a big distraction and moving them into a separate area was key.

I am currently making pots to take to the 14th Annual Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail.  I was fortunate to receive an invitation to participate from my friend and fellow potter Tiffany Hilton. I look forward to seeing her studio and classroom in the Arts and Industry building, to seeing all the amazing pots, and of course to seeing old friends and making some new ones! If you are interested in attending I encourage you to enter into the raffle to win this fabulous giveaway!

This is huge!  Win an overnight stay for two during this year's Trail (4/28-29) at the fabulous Hotel Northampton in downtown Northampton MA, two complimentary tickets to the pottery trail after hours partat Snow Farm on Saturday night, and a $50 gift certificate redeemable for pottery purchases at any of the nine stops along the Trail.
