Snazzy new pics.
How much better do pots look to me when they are out of my wee studio and in a setting that makes them stand out. It’s always a bit of a shock to see them like this but quite refreshingly so. They did all look rather small though in a big photography studio too.
These are all courtesy of Mr Shannon Tofts
again. It takes me ages to pluck up the courage to go and do it because
of course I’m never so completely
happy with pots that I think they are fit to be recorded like this and it’s an investment and if they’re not the best pots I can make then I don’t want to spend that money on them. So I don’t get pics done all that often and of course in the mean time many pots that I do love are made and get sold and afterwards I think bugger I should have kept that for a picture.
Anyway I went along to Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago and took lots of pots with me. Shannon has I think a very good eye when it comes to photographing craft, it’s what he has become quite renowned
for. It’s good too to have someone unconnected to the work to look at it as they often see something different
to me or have a better idea of how to show it than I would.
It’s all go go go at the moment. I’ve been trying to catch up and get a little ahead of myself this week before
I head off. The shelves are full and the kiln is full and the list is even fuller!
Lots of pots to be finished and so to be left drying while I am away. So when the alarm goes off in the morning it’ll be like the start of a sprint race and go go go.
