Bringing Clay & Stem to life
What a year 2020 has turned out to be so far.... if you told me what was in store, I would not have believed you! I have dreamt of my own little creative space for a while, and although this has been a crazy time, the universe definitely knew I needed some time out to bring my dream to life!
I started with a Pinterest board of delicious studio inspo (isn't Pinterest the best ever), it had been slowly brewing in my mind in the background. I showed my partner and my Dad during the week and by the weekend we were sourcing secondhand windows and doors, buying timber and sketching ideas.
We started by using recycled pallets, resting on bricks as a base for the floor (and by we I mean my Dad and my partner because let's be real, I just passed them things and got refreshments until I could paint and decorate ha!).
The entire build was a family affair with all my favourites pitching in to help out (all while keeping that social distance, I promise). Including my favourite furry friend and daily work wife, Koda.
My secondhand venco pottery wheel is obviously the hero, however I upcycled the shelving unit and used some second hand vintage chairs and a glass vessel. I painted some artwork and utilised a white board as both a functional and decorative element. My work table has been passed down through the family, starting as a dinner table in the 70's and now helping me create - who doesn't love a good backstory.
I am so appreciative and proud of all the work and love that went into this beautiful space! Big shout out to my man, my Dad and family and friends for all the support!
