Rods polished and ready!

My move to London has had me consumed to the max! Much to absorb, much to let go, much to discover, uncover… all at the speed of light and beyond. But I LOVE it.

So, my new studio space. Everything shipped from Belgium wonderfully, cared in my absence by my dear Belgie friends. The only real hurdles were foreign connectors and plugs on the equipment, and setting up House of Aeon Ltd.

The studio space is large and very well-ventilated, with plenty of natural light. The general rules and regulations for setting up a glass atelier is pretty much the same as I’ve done before in Belgium.

This time, I also have an area for guests to visit and chill out, with a nice fridge and kettle on stand-by 🙂  And for those feeling artistic here, take pleasure in enjoying my digital piano, reading art books or joining in some of the other crafts offered here, such as leather book-binding and candle-making.

The natural light bulb may not be needed much!

Not sure I’ve mentioned the details on the GOK gas regulator. I was introduced to it by BerlinBeads, who supply these with most of their torch kits. This regulator comes with some super safety cut-out features if the pressure changes or blockages are created by ‘scum’ entering from the tank into the regulator opening.   I’ve tested this regulator for such an occurrence and it works (regulator cuts-off gas supply and the valve indicator changes from green to red). When this happens you must buy a new regulator of course. I just LOVE these regulators!

    Great to see that you’re all set in the summer house: a lovely location for your studio.

    Good position for the keyboard. When you’re taking a break from the flame, you can dash off a quick symphony too! 😉
