Baskets and stackers.
||Moved most of the
tools off of the table......
.... and into the
little rolling cart. The table has only the things
that I use all the time. The things I reach for
nearly as often whether claying or stamping are
now in the rolling cart. This gives me tons of
free space on the table - I can do clay stuff or
paper stuff without running out of elbow
||Replaced that student
I pulled the dark desk
out of this corner and it holds instead - tada! -
four tall stackers with lots of "stuff" neatly
organized! Most of the inks are in the back corner
- the white stackers contain the things I use the
most with clay - cutters, texture, button molds,
pulvers & powders, foils, stamps, oil paints,
acrylic paints, Pinata inks, finishes.
||Starting on the left
Rolling stackers filled
with tools I don't use very often, Millefiori
canes, Mokume Gane pads, blended sheets, etc. Then
two stackers with unwrapped clay sorted by color
family. Paper stock, grids, sheets of glass, then
a tall stacker full of paints, pastels, foils and
two drawers of mica powders.
||Utility cart full of
jewelry stuff ...
Beads, wire, glues,
beads, jewelry tools, storage containers and did I
||The proverbial 4"
square of workspace ...
No matter how big the
table, we end up working in a tiny little clear
area. This one is surrounded by color-corrected
lamps, the oven, most-used tools, clay still in
wrappers, more canes and sheets, pasta machines,
camera, rollers and brayers.
The corner I rarely
have to dig into, thank heavens! More clay, more
inclusions, stamps, textures, tools, tools, tools.
To the right of this area is the computer,
scanner, printer, etc... but I ain't showing that.
