opinions please



I saw Kyle Carpenter's post about the 500 vase submission. I have no vase photos except this one and don't have time really to get anything made and photographed. But I do like this photo. Should I submit this?Let me know what you think. You won't hurt my feelings if you are negative, honest! It's a coil built vase, stands 18" with pipenburg glaze sprayed on and Raku fired.

YES! That's a giant yes -- it's fabulous. Now I can see why you are pursuing raku. You definitely should submit it. Do you have all the info for submitting?

Go for it! It's a great vase and the worse that can happen is that they say "no"...so what? I am going to be digging through boxes to find a few of my own pots to see if I can get decent enough photos for submission. The entry form kind of scared me when I read about the digital image requirements, but I think I'll be ok.

Good Luck!!

Send it in, Tracey. Those "500" books show a tremendous range of work and this is a pretty damn cool vase.

it's quite lovely and the lighting is more dramatic i think than most of the lark book photos makes it stand out..

Yeah I think you should. It's nice to look at, and it also has a bit of a quirky personality. What's the worst that can happen? You get rejected but at least you tried.

Laura said...

Thanks for the input everyone! I'm just not that objective with my work. I filled out the application today and burned a CD so it's off in the mail tomorrow. I think everyone on the blog roll should submit something. Come on, DO IT!!
