I often enjoy cropping my photos or taking close ups of the surfaces of my work, it’s surprising what can be seen when you look closer – sometimes a whole new image appears.
For me, it’s always landscapes and organic scenery that pop into my head when I look closer. The photo above makes a lovely image, taken from my Pine Tree Coasters.
The close up textured surface detail below is from one of my vases
, it reminds me of a dried grass meadow and a tree overlooking the scene on a windy day, with a hazy sky above.
And this impressed surface detail of my Tree Bark Sculptural Vessel
below reminds me of the face of a cliff with the foamy see lapping up the sides.

I’m thinking about making mounted prints using photographs of my work like the examples above.
Quite amazing what zooming in on surfaces can do to the eye isn’t it?
