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.
