It has taken a while but finally the studio is finished, all the blood, sweat and tears were worth it! Could you believe you could transform an old 1960's concrete garage into a beautiful, functional ceramics studio.
It is a lovely, airy, light space to work in and at the moment probably the cleanest it will ever be! The whole job from beginning to end has taken 5 months and has been done by my partner Frazer (in-between working offshore) and myself. Apart from the all important electrics which was done by the fantastic 'Electric Mark' - a friend and family member and the kilns were fitted by the lovely Dylan from Northern Kilns. So a big thank you to all who have been involved and a massive thank you to Frazer, for all his hard work, enthusiasm and patience!!
I haven't really had chance to get in there properly yet, just a bit of pottering and assisting family members to throw on the wheel. But that's the great thing, its there just outside my kitchen door and I can pop in whenever I like, for however long I want and I couldn't be happier!
Watch this space.
