Nest ceramics

There's a lot to learn about photographing ceramics! But for now a crumpled piece of cloth near the window will have to do.

Tessa Blem-Gawith made these beautiful handthrown bowls, which were a treat to decorate.

This one did take a while... but it was fun. I cut the transfers up, threw them in a pile, and pulled colours out at random.


A more generic bowl.


Some shallow bowls, good for dunking bread into.

They really aren't this uneven. Lesson one in photographing ceramics: stand further away and zoom in.

I'm going to have a hard time selling this one.

A giant teacup (the handle's on the other side, but that photo didn't come out so well).


Two giant mugs, because sometimes soup's good in a mug.



And two teacups.


I'm exhausted.... some linocuts and drawings didn't make it onto the blog before they were framed, but I'll take some pics of them tomorrow. I'll start answering emails again tomorrow as well, but right now: tea, bath, bed. Need to look (reasonably) fresh for the opening tomorrow night.

Gorgeous! ...but I'm miserable sitting at home sick in bed unable to attend the great exhibition. I am so sorry I am not there. I would have loved to have....soup and bread sound divine but I'm afraid my sniffles will not increase the appetizing quality for others. :( I hope it goes well.
