Over Christmas break I got a little time to work in the clay studio.Â I’ve also had school canceled a few days this winter so I’ve had a little extra time to put up shelves and get things organized.
I added a shelf at the top of the glaze area which I’m using for finished work and random objects that I don’t really use that often.Â Now I can use the two bottom shelves for glazes, chemicals and other glaze related tools and equipment.Â I might try to come up with a row of drawers or containers for storing chemicals.
I rearranged the small set of shelves on the floor and the table.Â Now I have better access to the whole table and I can move pots from the table to the long shelf against the west wall easily.Â And I feel like everything is less crammed into the corner.Â I haven’t glazed anything using this arrangement so I’m excited to try it out.
The other shelf I added is above the wedging table/workbench against the north wall.Â With this extra top shelf I have a lot of space to keep the stuff that I rarely use.Â Now I can use the easier-to-reach shelves for the stuff that I use regularly.Â Now I just need some more tools!
I also added one more set of shelves near the sink.Â I just bought the plastic, easy to put together shelves when they were on sale at Menard’s.Â I use them for drying plastic buckets and containers after I wash them.
