With the move date rapidly approaching decisions regarding setting up a studio still lingered.
- Will my new apartment in Austin, Tx allow me to set up a studio inside?
- Can I hide a glassblowing studio inside an apartment incase the landlord says no? haha
- Will renters insurance cover accidents within a glassblowing studio?
- What are the laws and safety issues that I need to be concerned with?
- What can I afford?
Screw the typical inside home studios I've been researching online, lets get creative! I need something that will work with my situation. I need a studio that will allow me to blow glass here in Rhode Island in the weeks leading up to the move, as well as a safe separate space that can travel easily wherever my future takes me.
A mobile glassblowing studio just made sense.
But which option? A trailer? Box truck? Old Uhaul?
As my search continued I found exactly what I was looking for!
It's perfect! Well not perfect but soon. I saw the potential.
Try explaining to your friends your going to convert a old stepvan into my mobile glassblowing studio without being called a crazy hippie! haha
The idea worked in so many ways. I needed a way to get my stuff to Texas anyways and was planning on renting a uhaul so that budget can now be combined with my studio budget.
2,500 bills later and this beast was all mine!
Stay tuned for conversion progress pics.
