Crystalline Macro II


Another set of photos of crystalline glaze on a pot made by Gordon Hutchens (see this link for his website), this time a side plate that belongs to my son.

I took these photos first and did not bracket the shots so they are processed differently from yesterday’s post.  Also, the bellows unit was set up a bit differently (the lens was not reversed) and thus I think that the magnification is more like 4x for this series.

    • Thanks Lynn. It is an awesome (in the old sense of that word) plate. It was striking to us the way it captured our son’s visual senses (he is a musician and we are much more used to him listening extremely carefully) and realised it would make a wonderful present for him.


    • Thanks Helen. A few years ago, when my (teenage) son saw this plate he looked at if for a very long time and then came back to it later in the show and had another long look. It was an obvious choice to buy him as a Christmas present and has become one of his treasures.
