My friend, Fred, sometimes has me photograph his pottery, so I thought I'd share it on here. Fred's work is unique and strongly influenced by Japanese ceramics. He achieves some really interesting surface textures through slips, glazes, and soda firing. If you like what you see here, he will be selling some of his work at the Midwest Bonsai show this weekend (May 18th and 19th).
...and now that I've shown off Fred's work, I'll do a little shameless self-promotion of my own. If you're an artist in the Chicago area, and you need photographs of your work, get in touch with me! I love working with artists to show off their creations in the best way possible, and I have reasonable rates. Save yourself the hassle of trying to shoot it yourself. Plus, if you're lucky, you might get promoted on my blog, which has literally tens of viewers each month!
