Moving day

Hooray! I moved into the studio yesterday - very exciting! I picked up the keys on Wednesday evening from Mizuyo  while she was covering her friend's lovely shop Momosan in Shoreditch.

Thursday morning was a mad rush to take my bike in to be re-wired then back home to collect my boxes of tools & buckets/sponges etc, wait for a wab and then off to the studio to await deliveries.

I cunningly left my phone at Mr H's so was uncontactable on the day - so had to spend most of the day hovering on the walk way watching every van that came in to see if it was for me. Top planning there!

Anyway, the wheel arrived safely on my very own pallet, and provided lots of lovely cardboard and packing peanuts etc that I'm sure will come in handy one day. It felt good to unpack, move a few things around in the space and start making it my own.

Sadly, because I was uncontactable the second big delivery did not set out for me, so I will have to wait til tuesday for the clay now. My own fault.

Luckily there was a workbench and a desk and a swanky leather reclining office chair and some shelves and sone drawers left in the space so there's enough to be starting out, but I am already pondering additional lighting, some more shelves, and either a new higher table or a way of raising the height of the workbench as it's much to low for me... which could be tricky as the partition is screwed into it... Lots to ponder over the coming months.

Also met some more of others who have spaces in the studio, including Buddug and one of the guys from Parasite ceramics. I look forward to getting to know them better.
