Bernard Leach

Thanks to my friend Kathy, here is a great quote by Bernard Leach, the father of modern day studio pottery:

Every artist knows that he is engaged in an encounter with infinity, and that work done with heart and hand is ultimately worship of life itself.

    Hi Anne!

    My best friend’s younger brother is an aspiring potter and he’s hoping to get into the School of the Arts here in Singapore, so i am helping him take photos of his work for his portfolio. However, i do not have the needed lighting, but i do have a decent Nikon DSLR . Do you have any tips for me as to how i can take decent shots for his portfolio?

    Tasha :)

    Hi Anne,
    Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. I found the setting to change the moderation as you suggested. I hadn’t realized that the comments were limited to blogger clients. That tabletop wheel looks fantastic! Portability would be great in the summer as I could throw outside :)
    Cheers, Pam

    oh you’re welcome Pam :)
    Hope it means you hear from more people now.

    Re the wheel, that’s kind of what I was thinking. Having to drag an awkward heavy wheel around sure takes some of the fun out of throwing outside (believer me, I did it most every fine day last summer). It was always such a big deal.

    With this little guy I’ll probably throw outside and trim inside since the Giffin Grip won’t fit the little 7″ wheel head.

    Thanks Pam :)
