the kiln is in the top photo in the rear on the right. Not sure, but I think that is a wheel with a splash pan next to it in the center.I see pots drying on the left in the lower photo. It is raining on the windows.looks like quite a few projects happening as well.

Where/how do you dry your pots? How far away is your kiln?

 

There's quite a lot of shelf space dotted around but I'd need to take a pic from the side to show them.

Yes, my kiln is there, close to the wheel , and there's another one, (my old one) under the table with the pots on.

 

I've usually got something going on.

 

I'll be working on making some improved versions (plenty of room for it) of these next.

Suburban  garden, 8' x 10' cedar greenhouse, shared 50/50 with over-wintered-plants/potting/garden stuff. And sometimes a bike. Although it's getting more like 60/40 now as pottery is taking over..  No wheel, but kiln lives in there too, some glazes live in under-bed boxes, and (inherited) raw materials are in buckets round the back of the other greenhouse (which is purely plants, and heated to frost-free in the winter).  No heat apart from the sun, and no power sockets, so any mixing/dremelling needs an extension lead running.

wow, john!  don't forget windows.  

 

tom, heated floors are the very best!

 

14 years without windows sounds like a sentence!  what did you do! :)

Oh yes, so many years in the basement without windows, I didn't even think of that. Working without windows keeps you focused on the work at hand.  My new space has windows looking out into a forest, but the windows are under a deck.  I am hoping having the furnace in the basement will keep the place above freezing, if not in the 50-60s in the winter like my basement now.

Urban basement ex-bedroom. I pack my work back and forth to a local Arts Centre. There are plans for a gas (hopefully soda) kiln in the back yard in the next 2-3 years.
Sorry about the vanity shot, it was for Etsy.
