Photographing translucent pots

16 September 2012 - 12:03 AM

I have just spent some time throwing and sandblasting some Southern Ice porcelain for new celadon work with overglaze for a solo show opening 22 September. Because of our geographical location there is a distinct shortage of competent photographers in our neighbourhood. Through necessity I have learnt over the years to photograph my own work. I feel that I have succeeded to some degree with my lustre work using a light tent.

However I am now trying to photograph the celadon work to show the translucency and this is a whole new kettle of fish. I am aware that light placement and background colour is very important

Can anybody give me some advice on how to tackle this problem. I would be very grateful for any help offered.

With thanks
