The Clay Studio is cleaned and organized!

Yes! It is really done. I worked on it over the weekend. Here are the pictures.
First I would like to remind you what it looked like before...
This is the ware/storage shelf I built. As you can see it is full. There is no room for any "wares" to dry.
Next we have the wedge table and glaze shelf. The two boxes on the right of the table are full of the glazes I got recently. I have no more room on the glaze shelf for them. Also, you can see that the wedge table now has the canvas on it but it is so covered with glaze to be put away that it can not be used.
Last picture shows the potterey wheel that was uncovered since the last photo taken of it and then covered again with something else. It is really under there somewhere, I think.
Next, the new pictures. Wow, I can not believe how much better I feel that this side is done. I still have lots to do on the Art Studio side of the basement but 2 out of 3 spaces completely transformed isn't bad...is it?
Okay drum roll please............... The ware/supply shelf now has the top two shelves cleaned off and ready to be used for drying projects.
The wedge table has been cleared of all the extra glaze and is ready to be worked on and the bottom has been arranged somewhat. Doesn't it look so inviting?
The glaze shelf is full and will get organized further when I do the little "ID" tags. The extra glaze was moved to the supply shelf. And last the kiln has been hooked up to the vent and with some further reading on how to use the kiln sitter I will be ready to fire! There you go. Next up...hmmm....hopefully some work in the pottery studio. Need to get working on the "ID" tags for the glaze and have a special secret project idea for my friend Rita up in Fargo who sent me some wonderful prints of her watercolor painting which are framed and ready to be displayed in the house. And so many other project ideas I want to try. If you ever see something you like, let me know and I can make something for you. I hope to be selling some of my work in my etsy store soon. Until next time.

Thanks for the comment on my EDM sketch ^^ I am not really an artist, just a wannabe.
But wow...you and my fiancee can be super close buddies since she's got almost every consoles ever made on this planet(post mid-80s that is for her, so no Atari XD )
But we both love games, just that we don't really have much time for that right now, I am busy working and she's busy studying... bah! We need an extra hour more per day so that we could do our gaming!! >__<
And you seem to play the guitar too, that's awesome! I should really touch my guitar too sometimes instead of my pencils the whole time -_-

Hi Jenna!
That's a lot of work cleaning and organizing--I know! hehe! Congrats! Can hardly wait to see what you make. Aren't you doing a special order for somebody first, if I recall? Nice!! :):)

No--I have no idea why you can't click on your pictures to make them larger, but I do see that yours are larger to begin with than mine are on blogger?? Maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe you can email Blogger and ask them? :)
