Imgp2413 - Wooden Cabinet for Glass.jpg
Wooden Cabinet for Glass Storage331 viewsThis cabinet has been sitting under Deane's workplace for 5 or 6 years and so we snavled it so I could use it to store my lampwork glass rods. It is 2.3 mt high x 1.08 mt wide x 34 cm deep and only just fits under the ceiling and boy, did the guys have fun getting it in there. ...and then getting it upright. Thankfully they only took a couple of tiny pieces of paint off the house in the process...

The rearranging process341 viewsWe spent the 3rd December 05 moving our entire upstairs office down into our entertainment area and the entire lounge arrangement that was previously down here upstairs... This is my jewellery making stuff that still needs to be put away.
And the other side.jpg

My Work Areas310 viewsJewellery design area on right in foreground. Book and magazine shelving is underneath my lampworking area.
My Jewellery Table283 viewsThe table was originally an old radio outside broadcast table which had turntables, a console and cartridge machine in it. Hubby covered the holes left by the equipment with pine and there you have it.
My Hot Head setup283 viewsI attach my torch directly to the bottle via a Primus Adaptor. These adaptors are made especially for these torches so you can get them from anyone who sells lampwork equipment.

August 2007 - Studio Pic prior to OG15170 viewsThe Disaster Area...
While I was totally looking forward to receiving my Oxygen Generator, I was NOT looking forward to having to clean this mess up...!
This view is from in front of my computer area.

...So much mess to clean up... :-(
August 2007 - Studio Pic prior to OG15174 viewsMy glass area.
The bookcase will stand next to this which means I have to swap all my glass around so I don't stab myself on the longer Bullseye rods...
August 2007178 viewsBroken Beads & Shells on my studio windowsill.

These broken beads will be given a new lease of life one day. Fusing, PMC and Polymer Clay will all play a part.
August 2007 - Glass Storage area rearrangement185 viewsMoving the bookcase to here meant all of my glass rods had to be rearranged. The 40cm rods which were overhanging the left side shelves had to be transferred to the right side so as to avoid the possibility of nasty accidents involving cuts and stabbings...
August 2007 - Lampwork Bench183 viewsSee how clean it is!!!
All there is to do here (apart from mess it up with glass rods and tools) is add a hood to the Ventilation. (Not necessary but it will look a bit tidier.)

I am thankful that I only had this small amount of glass to rearrange...
August 2007 - Lampwork Bench before...197 viewsIsn't it messy!!! lol

Cleaning up such a mess is not my idea of a fun time, but the incentive made it bearable... lol
August 2007 - Studio Pic prior to OGSI 15170 viewsOh my goodness... What a disaster...!

I hope I don't let my studio get this messy again...

Must be good. Must be good... hehe

Creation Station235 viewsI am still tossing up whether to keep using my Creation Station or getting rid of it. I am finding it to be a bit intrusive to my work area/tool placement. I am trialling a few different positions for the arm rests and I have found this to be the best so far.

Day two of cleaning.139 viewsWell, you wouldn't know it by looking at this pic, but I did actually make a dent in putting some things away yesterday. Only to replace them with the light tent and wire and tools for wiring up one of my vessels.

Stage 2: Get Hubby to assemble Purple Pantry.159 viewsI am stoked that I found this pantry in this colour. On collecting it from the back of the store tho, the guy tells us that it is the store lighting which makes it look purple and that it is actually white. DOH!!
But yay... Under my lights at home it is still purple, so I am happy. :-)
