The Object Eye


This photo is of the latest work I sent to Lille- a shop in Chicago. it is really hard to get good photos of ceramics and this image is just about perfect in my books. I've found that for a photographer to get a good photo of ceramics that captures the personality of the object not just the physical fact of it that have to have "The Object Eye".

Weirdly "The Object Eye" looks at a vessel subjectively, bringing out the intrinsic features of the materials and capturing an elusive something that might make someone long to actually touch, caress or fondle the object.
