So any way, this is my main work area, you can see my kiln on the right, my ventilation in the middle and my lovely purple torch slightly to the right. As you can see there are lots of tools, scattered around as well as glass. On a side note, I drink a lot of water when I am torching, since the heat makes me thirsty lol.
This is my glass. It is stored on these shelves by coe (co efficent) and then further organized by color. I will be honest, I can go downstairs and just enjoy looking at my glass. ( I have a hard and fast rule that I don't torch when I am tired, its dangerous and not worth the chance of burning myself badly. Don't ask me how I found this out lol) So on the days that I work I don't torch. So if I am really feel the pull to torch on those days, I will go down and do some pre torching color matching and designing. Lampworking helps me destress and relax and it makes me happy to make beautiful things.
Please, have a look around our blog and check out the great lampworkers and the wonderful beads that they make that are a part of this group. Now you have a bit of an idea what at least one lampworker's space looks like!Sonja McClung
