Photo Shoot and a POTTERY GIVEAWAY!!

TableTop Arrangements:

WOW – I sooooo LOVE the latest issue of ACC Magazine – The TableTop Issue.  Several Artists featured with delightful arrangements of tableware – Joseph Pintz, Tara Wilson, Paul Eshelman, Diana Fayt, Jason Bige Burnett, Heather Mae Erickson.  How could I not love this??  As a Ceramic Artist/Foodie/Blogger — I really enjoyed the article; appreciate the images.

Check out American Craft Council — I hope this Link works for everyone….

Just for fun I had to try shooting my own ‘arrangements’  — With a few of my latest pots.  Husband (Photo-Guy) graciously pitched in — Between business meetings.  We usually shoot in photo room, with light tent, lighting, etc.  Instead, we moved a small table over to a large window (before the sun came fully around), tried a few different arrangements, tried a few shots, a few different lenses, a few more shots.  FUN!!  The results – I’m sharing below.  Thank you to ACC for the inspiration….

  3. Maasha, I love the new design and the new location for your photo shoot. They complement one another, as if you brought in a twig from the trees in your yard and dropped it on the plate or in the bowl. This cold weather is stimulating your brain. Good show!

    • Hi Judi — Thank you for your comments on my twiggy new work. Actually, I’m just having fun with some special brushes that I made. Glad you like the new ‘setting’ by the window; we’ll likely try that again. Hope you’re staying warm — Marcia Paul

  4. I love your beautiful pottery, I always seem to buy as gifts and not for myself, even though they are hard to part with.
    I am happy to hear you are on the tour, I used to do the tour at my home also!
    Thank you for sharing.
