I like to use either vintage pottery vases or handmade studio pottery as containers in my Mixed Media art studio. Other artists may use empty glass jars or old coffee tins. Some artists seem to pay attention to the overall look of their studio, while others could care less and focus only on their work. I guess I fall into the category of wanting to "stage" even the supplies and storage containers I use. My favorite place to shop for "stuff" for my art studio is in junk shops or at flea markets. I usually spend under ten dollars for most of my pottery or ceramic vases. I picked up the vase shown because I adored the design pattern which mimics my own artwork which is inspired by Mid Century design. BTW, the white sculptural head shown as well, also came from a junk shop!
