A Moving Experience
No, not that kind. Yep, I'm up and off again. This time over to St Leonards, where we've found a great new studio space with more room each and lots more natural light. The light has been a major issue for me, our 'old' studio was a great space, but the lack of daylight was getting to me. You know it's bad when you step outside in January (bear in mind it's the UK) and you are blinded by the sunlight. Yep, you heard right... blinded! The compromise on space finally wore me down too. When you're trying to be creative sometimes you just need to spread out! Well, i certainly do. I can't do it on a couple of desks. I'll stick a few picks of the new space up once it's up and running and i figure out a camera! I don't even have one on my phone at the moment as i'm using an old back up (and waiting to upgrade... what other companies make you wait to pay them more money, crazy contracts!!). Anyway, between moving studio and the mounting pile of work, I'm pretty busy! ... I have been having clay thoughts though... shhhh, don't tell anybody, i thought i quashed all speculation that i might actually make pots. I REALLY want to sort my glaze firing out, so i can actually start making proper pots. To say I've been frustrated is an understatement and I've been seriously thinking that it's just not going to happen. I still fill all my spare time following the clay world though and my brain's always got it ticking away (I cleaned up my space and tools last night, so somethings stirring) Sometimes, though, you just can't take things any further on your own and you need help. I just hate asking and taking up peoples time.... so i keep trying to figure it out myself and then lose heart. Hey Ho, pots, maybe, one day. I have to make this happen. Can I make this happen? Did i ever say i'm prone to uselessness? Oh....
