Here’s a finished outdoor shot from today’s photo-shoot, using my new seasidey props.
Today I put my wooly hat and coat on, and went out to do some outdoor photography. Christmas is coming, and my online shop https://folksy.com/shops/heli needs replenishing with more lovely handmade Christmas and holiday goodies and gifts.
I’ve just completed another kiln firing so there is plenty more one-off pieces to show-off in my shop.
I wanted to concentrate on my ceramic boat sculptures. They’re a bit of a trademark piece for me as I’m quite well-known for making them. Every one is different and each is a joy to make. For me they conjure up wide open oceans, journeys, adventure, and the sense that anything is possible.
So today I needed a nautical seaside theme for my shoot. Luckily, my son Edward (age 7 1/2) and I love going on coastal walks, and scouring the strandline for interesting finds. He’s gathered up quite a collection, and I had no compunction raiding his stash today! Just look at all those gorgeous pieces of vintage pottery, seaglass, and interestingly-wormholed driftwood, and a choice crystal that washed up on Deal beach the other day. I just love it!
