Oh My, Oh My

The three pots in daylight, you can see the glaze colors much better here.

So very happy with this firing. These three vessels exceeded my expectations. This ribbon vessel is about 11 x 6.5 x 5 inches. Click on the photos to make them larger and see more detail.

This one is about 9 x 8 x 5 inches. Oh my, oh my, the glazes developed such luscious colors on these pieces. You may recall I experimented with several overlapping glazes.

This vessel is about 10 x 5 x 4 inches; about 8 inches around the middle (not sure how to state the measurements). More photos from this firing later.

Finished my wall tile hanging mechanism yesterday which need to set up for 24 hours without moving them. More work left to do because I'm artist of the month at Artworks in October. Gary will take a photo of me in my studio to accompany the bio I just finished typing. Now I must get more pottery ready to take to the gallery on Tuesday. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

    1. Hi Joanne, thanks, I am going to take more photos as these are a bit washed out due to the lighting in the studio.

  5. Success! I love the effects on the first one.
    Are you using your photo cube for photos? Have you tried photographing in the dark with just a directional light and the cube? We don't have a cube, but use a light box. The light box hangs above the pots. If the room isn't dark, that could be why your glazes are looking washed out in the photos.

    1. Hi Michele, thanks, no the room wasn't dark, my photos are getting worse and worse than they used to be something I need to work on, I am using the cube; this morning I took some outside and they are better but still a lot of reflection or too dark or too light. I will try what you suggest. thanks

  6. Congratulations, it’s always nice to have a great looking load from the kiln.
    I agree with Michèle, shooting pictures of our work is really difficult. You might remember the article I wrote a while back? It could help you with set-up and lighting (http://futurerelicsstudio.blogspot.com/2013/09/diy-photo-booth-setup.html).

    1. Hi Lori, thanks, the photos is definitely something I need to work on, hopefully after this rush this week I can concentrate on working all these details out. I need to dig out the photo lights and see what I can do to improve these; they are getting worse and worse. I was unloading at 11 pm because I had to type my bio and get my photos today and then pack up stuff today for tomorrow,.

  10. Just took a photo with the three pots on top of the kiln in natural daylight, glazes are much better in that light.
