Clay of the Day–photoshoot and clay tile backsides

Yesterday was a trip out to Snow Camp to see photographer Jason Dowdle to document some clay pieces and some of the little paintings that will be my May show at NC Crafts Gallery.  As always, it is amazing to see the work lit properly. Jason is methodical and thorough.

I always realize how “make-do” my phone pix are in comparison. I also appreciate my work in a whole new way.

Just a few of the 5" x 7" I'll be showing at NC Crafts in May
