New Table

This past weekend I constructed a new table for the studio. The old table, built mainly as a wedging and kneading table, was just too small. I needed some table space upon which to work. I lowered the height of the new table (compared to the old one) to make it more comfortable to knead clay. It's now less stressful on the arms and lower back. I bought a wooden stool to sit on which puts me just where I want to be (height-wise) when sitting at the table. I added two sheets of white, thick canvas on the top. Here are a couple of pictures:

I've been throwing lots of porcelain cups and mugs lately. I haven't thrown with porcelain for some time but lately I've been really enjoying working with it. I will post some pictures soon! Thanks for visiting.
