time to clock in and floor plan

We are shuffling the stuff. Now it is time to get serious about where it is all going. As you can see the mix room is filling up fast. It holds glaze materials, lamp parts, tools packing materials.... and sometimes just the where does this go item.

If we had made no changes in our work room there would be no thought in this process, but we made changes. When you have a fire you lose things and you need to make changes in order to keep from dwelling on what happened and move on.
This week will make the 6 month mark for us. We hope to end this week back in place and ready to work.
Well- as you can see we still have a lot of figuring to do about what is going where.
We have decided on the slab roller-
Now wheels.
I was on the left side and Mark on the right.
We are switching sides. We both have two wheels to set up, shelves, counter tops and table....
Bring in pugmill,
Back to the baby steps and back to Lowe's Hardware.
What's the theme song from Cheers:
Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows Your name.
I wonder if I can get a beer there?

That's a great view out the window on the bottom picture. Almost like a painting.

I was wondering why do clay studio's have a separate glaze room from the working room - is it because of the dust of the chemicals?

This has been a really long haul for you - I am so glad you are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel - what a beautiful space you will have.

Great poem for the slab roller.

Pictures don't do it justice; I think I'll have to come see it all in person! :)

I need windows in my life- you would have to lock me up and throw away the key if I did not get to look out a window all day.
Hi Linda- it helps to have one room which a potter is doing all the wet work in with out having to worry about the fumes from the electric kilns.
Tomorrow night is 6 months- thanks it has been a long haul.
Anna- you come anytime!
