My studio (separate bldg from my house) has no water and it works very well. There's a utility sink in our basement, about 25' away that I use for final hand cleaning/glaze mixing water. I wet mix glazes outdoors to eliminate dust inside basement or studio.
In the studio I use a 3.5 gallon plastic beverage dispenser that sits up on wooden blocks the same size as the dispenser base so it's stable. Dispenser has flip up/down lever to turn the water on/off so it's easy to use with slip covered fingers. There's a 12-cup plastic catch basin on the table under the tap. I use a 'clean water only' 3 gallon bucket to refill the dispenser.
I glaze about 50-60 pieces at a time and have glaze buckets on dollies. When glazing, I spread a fabric dropcloth on the floor that catches all the drops/splops. When it gets really dirty it gets hosed off outside and line dried.
Decades ago I had to haul every drop of potable water I used in daily life in gallon buckets which prompted efficient water use habits. While it works for me, it's probably not efficient if you are making 100 pots a day, every day. I'm in my studio almost every day, but have a leisurely production schedule and only mix 5 gallon bucket sized containers of glaze. My studio stays much cleaner without running water, probably because it makes me mindful of not being sloppy with clay/glazes.
