Someday, I will have my OWN studio space, where I can put ALL of my art stuff in one place, leave things out while I work, and keep them there til the project is done, and not worry about little hands or animals messing around with my stuff.
Until then, I have this:
My dad, who is a contractor, saves me all his leftover compound wire
Kiln doubles as stand for handheld torch station
Sawing, pounding, quenching, pickling
And my trusty bowling pin. I don't like to be without that!
Yeah, it's messy. But at least I have a little space. It could always be worse, right?
