My Passions and Art, plus A Studio Tour

My Passions and Art, plus A Studio Tour

I live on a lake,
and I use the visual cues I get from this experience to create my art.
I designed and built my studio next to my home in 2013.
We all have different Drivers.
Here are mine.
The joy of living with a Golden Doodle at the lake.
My Philosophy on Art:
Now a tour of my Studio:
I am very tall. 4'31" and bending over with a bad back is not fun so I developed a work space that ergonomically fits me and is safe.
Everything is on rollers and this allows me to work with different processes.
Tile saw, wet belt sander and flat lap
Messy... but well used.
I love this pneumatic hammer from Tm Technologies. 
It makes short work out of forming metal for my vessels and bowls.
I have several working areas.  This is where I weld and work with enamels.
Now... on to the other side of my studio. 
My clean side:
for Glass, painting, design and assembly.
I have a blog on how to create this stand
Some times we move so fast we never take time to enjoy the passion nature provides us. 
I  use nature as my medicine and am very grateful to live in harmony with it with my Muse and wife Elizabeth, our dog Ralph, and the  2 cats.
I would love your feedback. Leave me a comment and I will get back to you. Thank you.
