Hi Mike
This sounds great, it’s a fascinating topic. My workspace doubles as the dining room table – it’s good as it’s quite large and next to a big window so lots of natural light, but I resent having to clear up when it’s needed for its other function:)
I’m motivated to create by a kind of compulsion, I love turning one thing into something else and I’m always looking at materials to see if I can use them in a different way. If someone likes what I make enough to buy it and have in their home then that’s a fantastic feeling.
Looking forward to hearing more from yourself and others
