Sneak-Peek

It occurred to me today that now that I have this fancy camera, I really need to find or build a good spot to take some photo's. I guess most everyone takes shots of their pieces when they come out the kiln in their studio on a table or some place like that, but I just could not find anywhere today to set these few things I wanted to photograph. Hummmm...Perhaps it is time for a studio re-arrangement and a new project for the summer.

I will have to say that still with my high gloss glazes, I think it going to be a real challenge trying to take a good professional looking shot of my work. Isn't it funny how craftspeople really do have to be skilled at so many different things!

At any rate, here is a sneak peek of what came out of the kiln for my show this weekend. You got to love the towel I have underneath these two pieces!You can see that I did get some of those yummy drips on the ends!

Here is the cookie basket!

Jen, these pieces are very different from the stuff I'm used to seeing you make. Very cool & interesting. And a nice tribute to your Grandmother.

Good pics too by the way. Do you have a tri-pod?

Jen...really like to looks of some of your new work. You won't believe this but I have been taking pottery at Piedmont Tec's Edgefield facility for the past 3 years, have established a studio at the gallery, have done a couple of shows, entered two jurried shows (won in both)and am selling a lot in the gallery. I am so mediocre! Maybe in five or six years I will be OK.
I have studied with Ellen Shankin, Mark Hewitt, Rick Berman, Priscilla Hollingsworth, Tom Spleth...can't get enough. Hope to hear from you soon. Bob Taylor
