A blog of discovering clay. A chance to explore the philosophy and practicalities of twenty-first century pots. A collection of leads for my students and myself.

Studley Tool Chest

Studley tool chest

From Jennifer Knowles-McQuistion, book binder and fellow faculty member at Sarratt Art Studios:

Henry O. Studley, piano maker, built this tool chest in the 1800s. It holds 300 tools, measures 40”x 20” & is the thing I am most excited about today.

See it in action here.

(I rarely see both function and beauty served so harmoniously.)
