Capturing Translucency

One of the difficulties I have when photographing my work is capturing its translucency. The above image although flooded with light creates a crisp look, although it shows little translucency is and therefor far from the images I am hoping to capture. Something else to add to the to-do list!

Time for Something New!

I haven't produced much work recently but have been busy with Plaster of Paris developing some new forms and moulds. The image above is one of the new forms. I am also developing a series of setters for my work. Until now I have used the subtle distortions created by the firing process as part of the uniqueness of each piece. I am now looking at a variety of setters to use in the kiln so that, if desired, I can keep the original shape during the firing. By the end of this month all the moulds should be complete and dry and the new pieces should make an appearance.
