New Photo Session with John Polak

Fran and I had some new work photographed by John Polak yesterday. As always it was a great experience - chatting about news, the summer etc. but also being able to see our work through the eyes of a professional. I will be adding photos little by little on this site, spreading out the images.

I chose to have the Blockhead ceramics photographed. Fran had a new plate photographed. Some of the photos were intended for the upcoming publicity associated with the Pottery Trail. We usually have two of our pieces positioned next to each other either in real space or a cut and paste in a horizontal and vertical format.

One of the images was our traditional “two cups” shot in which two of our cups are juxtaposed as an example of what happens in the studio. I was surprised at how well this worked. We usually use this image for our own sales and publicity.

 The other combination. It is interesting to see similarities of forms in our work. The shape of the yellow lips and the marks of the landscape are almost identical.
