If we are happy with how we have set up our studio, we probably will be producing work that fits our personality. In other words, we need a space that allows us to create according to who we are. While I believe we all come out of the same deck, so to speak, we are all different. Some are jacks, some are queens and so forth. We must not try to be a king if we are a jack. And so, our studio must fit our personality.
Following that, our studio can change as our personality develops.

I have to say, putting the Studio Sanctuaries show together was very interesting. Only from viewing photos of each studio and the comments emailed I feel like I know each person. Your studio is an important puzzle piece of who you are. You can also see that we can make lovely pieces anywhere and in any space.

OK, confession. So what does it say that I've spread my space out all over the house? My equipment is in the garage, I paint and carve on the dining table, draw and finish pieces in the lower level. Maybe I need a different space?
Pat...sometimes we have to work according to what is around us. The dining table may work best for you and what you do. If you feel uncomfortable where you work, think about what kind of changes you can afford, make the adjustment and see how that effects your work. Changes to your studio will make change in your work. Tom
