Le studio tour

So the missus is back from Cincinatti (YAY!) and Becky Jo from Iowa emails "hey, how about a video studio tour?" and I think I have posted one before BUT THIS TIME it wasn't me behind the camera, it was me in front of the camera, leading the way....have a look, and the pic of the videographer below shows the museum---I have all these shelves super high up and lights which have pots going back to my earliest days plus a couple of things from other people, a lot of pieces....

Susan as herself said...

Wow--- that looks great! YOu have done a great job with the space, and I especially love those high shelves. I had them in my first Chicago apt, and had books up on them.

Tink said...

That was so cool! I don't think I've ever heard your voice before. :)

Cool tour! Awesome deck. Your pictures are always so great: What size is your light box?

Becky Jo said...

Right on! That's what I wanted to see.. the space and how you've got it all set up. I am so jealous of your skylight. My Bat Cave is well, dark. Maybe one day I'll have a nice shack in the yard with a skylight. Thanks for the tour!!! :)

that was so cool! I loved that! thanks for taking the time to do it, I grinned and Millie watched too (well, if me and Benny were giggling and smiling so much she had to look too) :D

Captain Awesome said...

That was awesome! Thanks to you and your lovely videographer!

That desk is too good to pass up. Garage sales rule.

I have found that the nicer the neighborhood the crappier the garage sale. It's very strange. I do hate the guilt that comes with garage sales when I'm the lone shopper and there is nothing they have that interests me. Why am I going on about garage sales...cool place!

Life with Kaishon said...

I loved seeing that. very cool. LOVE your garage sale desk. LOVE it like crazy. I haven't been to one yet this year because Kaish hates them....

I remember it well. It was such a great day, to meet you in person, Gary. Long drive - but really special!

What's that big square thing on the top shelf under the sky light? It has square tiles on it.

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

Thanks from Belgium for this very entertaining studio tour in your own home!

It's always a pleasure watching an online video tour: pictures say a lot, but video beats it hands down.

As I don't run an art studio I did post a personal video once at my blog: me and my partner in the Giant Wheel (75m/yards high) at last year's Antwerp, Belgium's yearly fun fair
(ongoing at present, in the poring rain)

great tour and hilarious too, particularly the subtle directing to the videographer and the surprising segue from the kiln being about the size of a washing machine to the actual washing maching.

Michéle Hastings said...

happy to hear that you own TWO felix shirts...at least one makes it to that washing machine while you are wearing the other :-)

Michéle Hastings said...

glad to hear you have TWO felix shirts...at least one makes it to that washing maching while you are wearing the other :-)

How many pots can you get in the washing machine?

Actually..... I was lookin at that, and thinking.... with a load of insulating firebrick... and some fiberfrax blanket, and some coiled kanthal elements.... You could recycle an old washer into a kiln casing.
One of my neighbours, a gay ex ballet-dancer, has the most interesting garden around, he has two big hanging planters made out of stainless-steel washer drums, strawberry plants grow out of the perforations. Another drum has a light bulb inside, it hangs and casts dots of light, like a stage-lighting effect, then there's the mirror-ball......
And the last washing machine-drum? A stainless steel barbecue pit.

But I digress. Great video-tour... I wanted to see the dungeon too!
