This isn’t the first time I have photographed this potter at this location . It is a place that I LOVE to photograph. The first time I photographed here, it was a different potter, in a different room, but the light…oh, the light!! It was unbelievable and I could have stayed there all day photographing him.
Well, they are now working in a different room. Not sure why, but this room was pretty amazing too. I got some great shots that I’m really happy with. It’s also inspired an idea for a new/another project. (Rabbit trail…I just read an interview with photographer Art Wolfe, and he said he always has multiple projects on the go…I love that idea, and it seems I am moving in that direction, with some really fun ideas going thru my mind lately of project ideas!)
But anyways, here are the photos! 🙂
The workshop, all ready to go!
The potter has arrived, and started his first project. It will be a bowl when finished.
Finishing the edge.
A new lump of clay begins the process of becoming a bowl.
The hands and the wheel.
Enjoying his work!
The base that he puts the clay on in order to form a new piece on the wheel.
It was fun to photograph this potter, and I’m sure I will go back sometime to photograph him again. There’s something about photographing there that I just love. I think it is the combination of great light and great subject matter. That’ll get me every time! 🙂
