window wish


So pleased to tell you about this! My pottery studio (currently under the construction by us) now has got all windows fitted! Hurray! A big thank you to my wonderful hub. The studio has windows on three walls; the entrance doors, the main wall on the side and the back. As much as I wanted the natural light in, too much exposure to the light is not that good for clay work. So the size is a kind of reduced to the minimum but the effect is maximum.

This is what we did. For the main doors, we’ve recycled the glass that was found in the garage. For the back wall, considering the neighbour, only a narrow strip of glass was placed, which is again a found piece. I love this one particularly, pretty retro dotty patterns that looks like from the 60’s. For the main wall, which are facing to our house, we’ve ordered double glazed pieces from a local glass company and fitted in my hub’s handmade wooden frames. I think it’s transformed well from the old garden shed. xm
