Studio #108 ready for visitors on the weekend of the Cleveland Bazaar Holiday Sale
Busy is good.
It has been months since I wrote anything in this work journal of mine. I know it is supposed to be a discipline, but there have been SO many other things to do. Work. Jobs for churches, jobs for other studios, jobs for new clients. I've been calling it "pleasantly overbooked." I am enjoying the heck out of it. It's never boring, and there is always something to be done.
Third Fridays, the Open Studio nights at 78th Street Studios, have been great exposure. I've met countless homeowners, contractors, realtors and design professionals who are interested in my work. The most common reaction is that people are happy to know there is someone out there still doing this kind of work, particularly residential restoration. There are so many lovely stained and leaded glass windows in the century homes of Greater Cleveland that are due for some attention and maintenance. Even the simplest of them are examples of fine craftsmanship. I am glad to be available to repair and restore them so they can be enjoyed for another hundred years.
The studio has come a long way.
