As promised, here are some images from our most recent photograph session with John Polak:
This may have been the first “Blockheads” piece. I had already begun making the prints and I wanted to try out the same imagery on some clay pieces. The approach is different regarding prints vs clay - the clay is always loser and more spontaneous.
This may be the second “Blockheads” vase. The changes that begin to happen are that the vases become more complicated in form and there continues to be experimentation regarding the best color to black and white ratio. The images are still very loose.
This piece becomes a complete black and white piece and there is a lot more variety in the shape of the piece and the types anad sizes of images used on the surface.
