My pottery studio is being redone! It is located in the old pole barn which previously was the furniture factory for Griffith Tabletop Furniture. Here is a post that I did previously on the barn and my studio. Click here.
Now in Australia a “barn” is called a “shed”, but to me, this can’t qualify as a “shed” as it is too huge. So I will refer to it as a barn, ok?!
Due to a roof cave-in last year and the decrepidation of the side building, a redo HAD to happen! Wind, rain, and dirt came in like a hound dog and it was not great for working.
If you click on the little pics, it will bring up a larger size pic and a slide show.
So, finally, this week, the work began. The progress has been amazing!
One of the final things to come down was the old silo! Here is a pictorial of that event!
However, because of the noise of the excavator, tin crashing down, hammers, chain saws, and yelling of guys – I had to spend my time cooking, not potting. Keep ’em fed and Keep ’em working.
I come from a long line of cooks that can cook for a crowd and especially a crowd of guys working. As a kid, some of my favorite times were the lunches in the field during harvest and the big lunch spreads for the cowboys when working cattle, so this type of cooking is in my blood – weirdly, it is fun to me!!!
I did bisque fire my big pot and angel during all this hubbub and hopefully will be able to do a glaze firing soon!
The end result is going to be a gorgeous barn and work area!
Peace out, my lovelies!
