Little odd unexpected things

Friday, June 28, 2013

In my last post, I showed some photos I'd taken at the Leach Pottery in St. Ives - and promised I would document my own studio in a similar way.

It's been an interesting little exercise, which made me look in a slightly different way at the stuff I use every day. I've mainly focused on tools - there's something nice about the bits and pieces that are used in the process of making.

Of course, this visual snapshot doesn't show the piles of yarn, piles of knitwear and piles of paper also surrounding me...

Pilgrimage to the Leach Pottery

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I seem to be using up all my words on my thesis (6 chapters done now!), conference papers (available here), book chapters and funding bids at the moment. Not too much brain-space left over for blog posts!

So here's a visual blog post, from my visit to the Leach Pottery in St. Ives last month. I found it quite moving to be in the former workspace of a maker I have read a lot about - and particularly special to see the homemade tools, and little odd unexpected things, around the workshop. 

On Thursday, I'll do a follow-up post documenting the tools and such around my own studio...
