A Few Glimpses of Curio Studio

Thought I might get back into blogging and the creative process by taking a few shots of my studio. It is nestled among 40 foot spruce trees and features a screened in porch and all the amenities I could possibly need to create in a comfortable, warm environment. It is located about 200 feet from my home (although when 6 foot snowdrifts separate house and studio, it might as well be miles away! Lucky for me it is crusty snow time and I can just scoot over the drifts.) I digress...

In 2007, my studio was broken into and it has taken me quite some time to feel creative in that environment again, but it is coming about. Although they did little damage, they stole one of my most treasured tools - my computer. Don't get me wrong, a computer is just a possession that can easily be replaced but what the computer contained was a good deal of my creative memory and the images I created are gone forever. And of course, it just takes awhile to get over somebody invading your personal space. I think I am there now.

There are a lot of odd bits at Atelier Curio Studio, ie. a latex mold of ears;

A medical tray with dental instruments and various odd bits and pieces used mostly in clay work;

a couple of kilns and kiln supplies;

glaze tests & characters waiting to be bisqued;

various odds and ends;

and copper and tin plates used to make prints.

Of course, there are a lot of other materials and work surfaces, but not everything is suitable to be photographed...even some of the shots I did take should'nt be shown, however I think I'm in an evaluation process. That being said, I'm just going with the flow - sometimes meandering, sometimes rushing!

Curio, I can imagine how you felt when your computer with all your art records was stolen. Besides the invasion of your space, losing your art record is gut wrenching. I lost all my art files when my computer crashed. I decided to open a Flickr account for this reason and keep a lot of my art photos there. It's worth thinking about.
