WorkTable Wednesday

Today I bring you a photo of the bulletin board over my worktable.  Like all bulletin boards, it has both useful and not so useful stuff:

  • Maggie Maggio's color pyramid and color scales - priceless!
  • Inch-millimeter-gauge chart.  Not used much anymore since I'm working less with metal. 
  • Expired Trader Joe gift card to scrape clay off the floor.  A broken wood skewer to clean pasta machine.
  • Assorted scraps of paper with color recipes and technique notes which I hardly ever look at again.
  • Roller. 
  • Slicer.  If I caned, I'd use it all the time.  But I don't cane so I'm not sure why I still have it there.

Finally, a photo of a Jil Sander outfit from a couple of years back.  I have it there to remind me of my design style.  Polymer is so versatile that it is easy to over-think and over-work.  The picture grounds me and always brings me back to a clean and spare aesthetic.
