|how my work table always looks|
|studio is actually tidy (yes THIS is tidy)|
as you can see ~ my studio in the above photos is a disaster. i lay things out when i work on them, if everything is put away i can't play around and see how 'this looks with that'. but the problem is i had nowhere to put anything away so it just started piling up. winter is the time i do not work much because its too cold outside to work with metal and too cold inside because i'm too cheap/poor to use heat, i decided to at least organize things to be ready for spring. my shelves SUCK but by god i have em now albeit lopsided and hastily made because i dont know how to make shelves and i dont like working with wood unless its in my own Dionysian way. i didnt think about them in advance. i made them with a frenetic hatred. a friend gave me some wood to use and suggested how to put them together. the first shelf was horrid and i wanted to cry thinking about making another. by the 3rd shelf my back went out and i was a raving lunatic. i didnt even take time to think about how tall they should be or how much space should be in between each shelf; in fact, i was seething with anger the entire time (lots of swearing going on) cuz it was cold out and i was freezing and just wanted them damn things done. they amuse me in that they lean and the individual shelves themselves slant. all i know is they hold my shit and i lucked out because my little hardware drawer things (i dont even know what those are called) fit into them even though i never even harbored the thought of putting them on the shelves.
