Studio space

I have met very few artists who would claim that they have more studio space than they need. We are always struggling for more room and the space keeps shrinking.
Of course it is not possible for us to move to bigger space every time we run out of room, ….though that would be awesome! Like many other artists I try my best to get the maximum utilization of space that I have. Very often I convert a part of my space for another stage of the process as well.

Here is a glimpse in my studio
Using dead space under by slab roller table to store my glazes and having everything on wheels to make moving things easy.

Tools arranged on a pegboard with hooks for easy access when I am throwing on the wheel.
Stackable large storage bins to store glaze chemicals.
Clearly labeled chemicals in clear containers.
This is how my regular work space transforms in a photo studio.
Do comment with your secrets to make the most of your space.

My organizational skills suck! Do you do consultations? LOL Great tips and suggestions, thanks.

wow - you are truly an inspiration. The idea of putting heavier things on wheels is brilliant!

What material are you using for your photo tent???

Maggie Hesketh said...

Where did you get the background for your photo set up?

Wheels, yes wheels on stuff in my sewing studio too. It makes it easier to move things around when necessary.

how to make this type of tent....my photoes do not come well....please help

Lalita, I use a frosted acrylic sheet (the one used to cover ceiling tube-light fixtures in offices). The sheet is flexible and it is just bent over the pot with some heavy boxes on the side. This diffuses the light and does not create harsh white spots on the pots. Good luck!

Anyone know where to get those large stackable storage bins that you can scoop from as shown above. I can never find them.
