  1. I am meeting with an architect this week who will be designing my new studio. The concept is this: a main clay workspace that is 36x36'; a closed off, but connecting 44x16' space that will be divided up into "clean" studio with office, a kiln room and a storage room. There will be a small bathroom, and heat throughout (heated concrete floor), but no cooling. The sealed off kiln room will be ventilated to the outside in addition to having an opening window (two electric kilns). My raku kiln is outside. My concerns are: ---ventilation in the clay space: I plan on having multiple opening windows, as well as a double garage door that can open for clay deliveries and airing out. I very conscious of dust, and clean up continuously, but you know how it is! I am on the water, so there is often a breeze to help/hinder when windows are opened. Suggestions? ---lighting? There will be multiple solar tubes installed, clerestory windows all around. Right now the debate is: Built-in ceiling LED lighting (flood) or use hanging LED Shop lights that can be moved/adjusted if need be. Shop lights require cleaning..built in's not so much. Thoughts? I do about 50/50 handbuild and wheel work...any other thoughtful advice in this planning process? ---This is not my first studio, but it is the first I have built from scratch and I am very excited.
