the life

The past two days I've spent cleaning and re-organizing my studio. I like my studio to be very neat, clean, and organized, and I'm always confounded by the fact that it frequently resembles a disaster area. I love cleaning my work space up, making it look like a very orderly & together person works there. I always promise myself to take the extra 10 minutes every evening to keep it looking pristine, and I always have hope it may happen this time. The first time I saw Diana Fayt's studio, I immediately went back to my studio and cleaned for like, two days. Her studio is what I aspire to: low dust factor, everything in its place, room to think and work.

I'm basically laying in new trenches. I'm anticipating very busy weeks and months ahead of me, and I don't think I'm going to have time to reorganize the studio again until next year. That sounds crazy to say, but that's how it is around here. Warp speed. I also interviewed a new assistant, part of my war plan. She doesn't know it yet, but she'll be heading up my calvary while I hole up with my wheel and plot my takeover.

Things just feel very calm right now. I've been re-designing my website to make it more interactive and give people the ability to purchase work and pay for it online. I guess that's called a shopping cart. I've also been playing with new shapes and ideas. I threw this weird looking thing the other day:

I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet, but something is going to happen. That's the mantra right now.


  1. Heh to the "weird looking thing". All my stuff comes out weird looking. But at least it's not wobbly anymore.
