[above: This is our consultation area where we meet with customers and plan fun print projects. We love this table so much. It was made by Eco Pdx from a fallen redwood tree. The murano glass chandeliers were one of our biggest studio indulgences, but well worth the expense. We think these french white enamel chairs are such a great contrast with the rustic table. ]
The pendant lights in this photo are from Ikea. We just removed a birch wood wrap and added some interesting bulbs to make them look custom. We get lots of compliments on them. I love the shelves we had built for the wall. They house all of our ink. At my last studio I had all of the ink in a drawer where it was really hard to find and keep organized. Now it is all right in plain sight and I am so pleased. The trusty blue guillotine paper cutter takes a little bit of muscle, but has been serving us well for a few years now.
My favorite aqua blue Judy Jackson vase and our nipping press. I adore the way the color of the vase contrasts with the orange pods and the soft brown walls.
The selling point of our new studio was the magnificent original wooden beams and17 foot high ceilings. Here Chelsea is working on some ochre yellow flower coasters.
