Malcolm Temple: shedworker

A nice piece in The Guardian by artist Malcolm Temple discusses his self-built garden office (pictured above). Here's what he says:
"Artists need somewhere to sit and think. At home it's easy to sit and be lazy, but to sit and dwell on creative thoughts is difficult because domesticity intrudes. So this is a controlled place for creative thinking... Once you've got a shed, you carry it with you in your head - the sanctuary is always there."
The whole build took three months and most of the materials were free and recycled, including materials taken from skips and four cut-glass windows at the back which came from a pub that was being refurbished. Quite rightly, he says he is proud of the results.
