Photo Finish

treat server under loose plastic
One of my rituals after finishing an involved piece, like this treat server, is to snap some photos of it.  Seeing the silhouette, flattened on an iphone screen, actually allows me see proportions and shapes that were unnoticed in the round.

Since most pots are viewed through photos on the internet, making picture taking an active part of process, evaluation, and evolution just makes sense.

Form is as important to me as it is to most makers.  The in-process photo also allows me to see Form, uncorrupted by my obsessive surface decoration. ;)

Process Shot

Get to work!  It's Friday and since returning from SOFA Chicago, I've taken a few days to do NON-STUDIO life maintenance.  It's been nice to attend to some things I've let lag, but I am itching to get back into the studio rhythm.  Here's an image of me forming a handbuilt platter to get things going.
