Pod Space is a new garden office company - with a rather nice web site - set up by architecturally trained designer Ben Lord. Interestingly, and this is a trend I expect to see more of in 2010, the pods (there are three models) are aimed at employers who want to give their staff the option of working from home as well as individual shedworkers.
MICRO POD | GARDEN STUDIO *** " The Micropod is a garden studio measuring only 2.5 by 2.0m. Everyday, with modern times and the use of new technologies, more people are working from home, this is the ideal solution for homeworkers. The Micropod has a compact design making it fit unobtrusively into most gardens. You can customize your pod with options including additional windows, under floor heating, fitted desks, shelving and decking. "
Follow the Clay:: Think of how the moist clay will physically move through the studio in every stage, from forming through packing. A large studio does not necessarily mean a profitable operation. It is quite possible to have a cost-effective pottery in a relatively small studio. One area of production should flow logically to the next.
