after breaking (accidentally) 3 large pieces today, i had the pleasure of visiting at the Potteryboys studio in Palm Harbor this evening.  there is a workshop going on this weekend with several crystalline potters and featuring the work of Robert Hessler, who was giving the workshop.  as usual, glenn and keith made the whole party marvelous, inviting everyone and welcoming all of us to their lovely home.  and as usual, everyone brought wonderful food.  robert had a number of pots available to buy and the crowd certainly took advantage of that opportunity.

 

i took photos of gorgeous pots, not always sure who made them, i just saw beautiful things everywhere and snapped away.  everyone seemed to be having a great time and so did i.  will try to post pictures of what i saw.  thank you Jed, for helping me understand how to adjust the photos i take, now if i could just learn to hold the %$%$ camera still, they might be in focus!  happy viewing.

 

sorry, jed, i forgot so much that i did not alter them as much as i could have.  the last one is so dark you can hardly see GLENN.  worked on them for a long time but did not do what i wanted.

Gorgeous pieces. Thanks for showing.


I never make mistakes, but I often successfully determine what doesn't work.

re: camera focus...I have an invisible tremor in my hands and can't ever guarentee something I'm shooting is still in focus by the time I hit the shutter. Two things help--a cable release fro the shutter and--the best thing---a Joby Gorrilapod.

glenn does that platter pretty often.  it must be over 18 inches in diameter.  it is stunning.  the carving out of the openings would make me so tense that i would probably break more than i would do right.
