Gosh, this summer brought along a rather exciting change: I got a place in a shared ceramics studio. This was a big investment on my part – I haven’t finished my studies so I still have to commute between two cities, and that requires both money and time. But, the opportunity came and I didn’t want to miss it.
I share the studio with three other ceramicists, one of whom is still finishing her studies, just like me. The place is arranged to suit especially slip casting, so there are two large casting tables, a plaster wheel, a large mixer for mixing clay, a spraying booth, two kilns, and plenty of storage space. And, as if this wasn’t enough, the studio is in a really beautiful old factory building close to the city centre and a lovely lakeside park! What could be better? Nothing, says I! Just look at those massive windows.
I have lots of ideas for what I want to make in here during the summer and in the future. This place means it’s time to get to work for reals!
