The casserole's size is really not showing in this picture. Maybe place something in the picture to show the scale like some ingredient that might go into the casserole or a serving utensile...
Love your vases! They are dreamingly beautiful. I agree with Lon Buff. If I were you, I'd place a salt or pepper pot or both or a wine bottle and a glass or something beside the casserole. I would think that the direction of light is important too.
Now I've got that song on my mind...thanks!
I agree with Lori about adding something to the photo for scale.i never use a flash when photographing work. Adjust the positioning of your light or lights, instead. Using a pieces of white foam core to bounce light in different directions is also helpful in some instances.
Hi Lori, thanks, oh that is a great idea of adding the ingredient, didn't even think of it thanks so much.Hi Sapphire, thanks, oh those are great suggestions for what to place next to the casserole.Hi Turquoisemoon, thanks, it's an easy song to have in the mind that's for sure, was it the Bee Gees?
Hi Michele, thanks, more good suggestion for my photos, thanks so much
The layers and changes of glaze colors are fabulous, making the towers become pieces of art. Same comment as others have said regarding scale...I've even seen coffee grounds or noodles spilled across the surface.
Hi Barbara, thanks, oh more good suggestions, I do have some noodles in the cabinet, such creative ideas, thanks again.
Love how you described the vase's interior like looking down a hand-dug well! Perhaps if you put something in back of the casserole, it would highlight the size.
Hi, Linda! You are a very talented person. I really do like these ceramics. My mother, who was an artist and writer, dabbled in ceramics, but never really did anything like you're doing here. And thank you much for taking the time to stop by our blogs and commenting! Much appreciated!
Hi Kittie, thanks, yes in back glad you mentioned that as I was inclined to put something in front, but in back might be just the ticket.Hi Lowell, thanks, oh I don't think there is anything quite like I am doing. ha., came upon your blog googling Murphy's oyster bar as a friend of ours recently went there, a photo a day is so great to see, glad I happened upon it.
Do you doodle these in your mind as you are making them? Or do you think them through before hand? I really like the vase handles...
And now 'Feelin Groovy' is my mind-worm of the day. I love your pottery, and also drool each time I go to your Etsy Shop. Thank you.
So now I have the 59th St Bridge & Feelin' Groovy playing in my head...;)~Mary
Hi Dee, thanks, these were just made without any doodling, others I do make drawings. I can imagine three dimensional pieces in my mind and sometimes they just become what they want to become. For the handles I just tried placing up the form to see how it looked and these somehow complemented the form.Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, these songs are so easy to invade our thoughts.Hi Mary, thanks, oh now I need to remember the 59th bridge song, but maybe not, lol.
I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
