Tom Sachs, a contemporary sculptor working out of New York City, runs a tight ship. His studio, which employs a number of artist’s assistants and techs, is color-coded, clean, and knolled to perfection at all times.
Although his extreme orderliness may not be your style of working, I think that his videos (especially 10 Bullets) really make you think about the way that studio environment influences work quality and the importance of respecting your tools and your space. I watched this as a student in my first sculpture class and it was influential in how I operated from then on in the classroom studio space.
How to Sweep and Love Letter to Plywood are also delightful short videos about the importance of basic skills and how little things like sweeping and paying attention to cuts make a significant difference in the quality of both the studio itself of the final pieces you can produce. Even if you’re not a sculptor, these videos are well worth a watch.
