Welcome to dickblick
Experience freedom of movement like never before as you draw, paint, design, sculpt, or craft on the innovative ArtSphere Easel by Daler-Rowney.
What makes this brilliantly designed wooden table easel different? The work surface can be spun or angled in any direction thanks to a unique ball-and-socket joint. Simply use the chunky handle on the base to configure your ideal position, then lock it securely into place with a turn of the knob. The mechanism is easy to maneuver — even while working.
Adding even more versatility, the stops on the work surface can be moved to accommodate a portrait or landscape orientation, and the board can be completely detached from the base if desired.
The work surface of the Daler-Rowney ArtSphere Easel measures 16½" × 11¾" (42 cm × 30 cm). It weighs 8 lb (3.6 kg).

never gets used
Comments about Daler-Rowney ArtSphere Easel:
seemed like a good idea. I do pencil and ink drawing about the size of the platen. Just doesn't compare to a drawing table. feels wobbly and cheap. Now taking up space on my bureau and spent too much to throw out, which, my bad.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Super Sturdy. Excellent for Botanical Art and Illustration.
By Carlos R.
from Westchester Co., NY
I was looking for a smaller desk-top easel for painting using watercolors on hot press paper. Specifically, I wanted something that I could rest my hand on while painting, and that it would be sturdy enough and not move. This easel does the trick! Also, it can be angled in many more positions than I'd ever need. I highly recommend this item.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This easel is perfect for my needs. It is sturdy, versatile and raises my project up so that my neck is so much more comfortable. I love the way the sphere gives me endless possibilities for angles and positioning of tablets and block and paper. So glad I bought it. And the price here is the best anywhere!
Really enjoying this easel!
from Baden, PA
I haven't found any other product similar to this. I love that the drawing surface adjusts to practically any angle you want. Mine seems very well made with quality parts. It arrived fully assembled except for The two wood blocks that are to be screwed onto the bottom of the drawing board to keep your paper/canvas from sliding off. One screw was too short. It doesn't affect me as I prefer to use rubber bands. If I change my mind I can easily buy a longer screw. So far I am quite pleased with the D&R Artsphere.

Awesome until it broke
from New Jersey
I adored this easel for the first 6 months I had it. Takes up so little space, easy to adjust, sturdy bottom and working surface, saved my neck and shoulder all kind of discomfort thanks to the ball swivel.Then it snapped off. Like, the top part literally snapped off the ball swivel. The construction was not thought out well--the screws attaching the ball to the easel top are placed in a way that is WAY too close to the edges of the sphere (probably half a cm of wood holding the screw in place). No wonder it was so brittle.I am going to attempt to fix it with wood glue, but I'm not impressed. A great idea poorly executed. I'm pretty bummed about it.

Assists with posture
from Edmonton, AB, Canada
Helps maintain proper posture while doing detailed realistic watercolors. It's movable with a small footprint, and the ball mechanism is simple and works well. The worksurface is large enough for my needs; however I have to use an additional support for the paper as there is a slight warp to the worksurface – seemingly due to the warping of the wood base it is screwed to. I would agree with a previous comment that the quality of the materials is less than stellar, so try and buy it on sale. The holders are large and can impede hand placement; I often just use one or none and clip my support board to the worksurface.
An artist assistant
from Paso Robles, CA
The ArtSphere easel is my assistant as a beginning watercolorist. It has varied positions to use whether I am drawing, applying color, or working the details, and extremely sturdy.

Perfect for watercolorkng

Great answer to back and neck ache.
By Inkke lady
from Petoskey, MI
There is everything to like about this table top easel. It has a small footprint, lightweight, can rotate 360 degrees, has incredible tilt, even going to a flat surface. If Daler-Rowney did anything to improve it, they would include 3 clamps instead of 2. But that being said, you can use your own clamps.
