Yhonnie: I keep a workspace at home. It’s quite an intimate little space. It’s where I work on the ideas and the research-based part of my practice. I do all the physical work, all the actual glassblowing, in Adelaide’s JamFactory. It works better for me to have the two separate. Here, I like to lay my works-in-progress out on the table and look at them and think about them. I only box them up when they’re completed.
Every day in the workspace is different, it just depends on what I’m working on.
Emails are always first priority, though, and I just take it from there.
It’s very much like a 9-to-5 job. It does make life difficult when you’re taking phone calls and doing a lot of admin while trying to work on ideas. I’m yet to figure out the perfect balance.
