Workshop Upgrade

11 January 2021. It is difficult to see yourself accurately, to access your own work and by extension, to see how your skills have improved both aesthetically and technically. I am not handy by nature and I am not naturally comfortable around power tools and yet, here I am, with more tools and skills than I could have ever imagined.


I have spent the last month or so not creating, or at least not creating Foundlings but in making a more efficient workspace. Clearly, having the right tool for the job is critical but having a space that is conducive to working is just as important. I have found that if you don’t “see” the tool, you don’t use it so I have set out to make the tools visible and the space more efficient with clear surfaces to work on.


I had a very productive past year producing more than 23 pieces. Due in part to the pandemic, I was in the workshop more. I am excited to see what this new year will bring — more creativity, more pieces and perhaps, more importantly, a return to normal times.
