I had hoped to get a studio together by October 1st. For the first time in my life as a professional potter I'm ahead of schedule. I just signed a lease for this great studio space in East Austin. It's in a brand new live/work condo development called Cobra Studios. The woman I'm leasing the unit from is a painter and had planned to use it herself but luckily for me decided to lease it out instead.
Here are a few pics. I'm planning to move everything in by Friday and hopefully I'll be fully operational by sometime next week.
Here is the main space of the workshop. I'll probably have the wheels, table and shelving set up here.
This is the back area. I'll set it with shelves and a table for glazing.
Here's another view of the back area. I have an electrician coming in to wire up a disconnect box for the kiln along that back wall.
Here's a view from the main are out to the common area of the complex. There are 4 buildings around this courtyard. If it ever rains again in Austin, those giant tanks are supposed to hold the water to use around the complex.
So, now that I have a space and will begin life as a potter again, perhaps posting will resume on a more regular basis.
