Lampwork and Metals studio
Yay! It's basically done! My own little corner of the world. A place to melt the glass and pound the metals. There is room to teach too.
The ventilation system works perfectly. hooray! Bryan did a wonderful job. The 'box' to lampwork in is lined with metal, and the outer section is handy for hanging tools. The ventilation is through the top, and well lit also. I love lighting my torch and watching the flame getting pulled toward the vent.
You see my work bench is already in use, as is the bead kiln. Beads are annealing and a piece of jewelry is being created on my bench.
This is the best ever spot to work. There is still organizing to do, dusting and mopping, and a long shelf to hang, but it's taken shape beautifully.
It's good to be back in the swing of things too, since I haven't been able to work on my torch for a bit of time while this was taking shape.
Happy 2011 and hoping for much beadie goodness! :-)
