Mark is putting together the lamps that came out of the firing and I thought that he should shoot some pictures of them before they run away to live some where else.
It is not often that I hear him say he would keep a piece out of the kiln but this lamp has him yearning to keep it.
It is a lovely lamp and I hope that the folks that ordered it will be as happy as we were when it was unloaded from the kiln.
It needed some company so Mark brought in some friends to surround it with.
We were talking about how best to photograph a lamp.
If you do them with no shade and no light blub they just look as if something is missing. All you can look at is that bare harp just sticking out and taking the life right out of the overall look of the lamp.
Then when you add a shade and light it all seems to come together.
I think we sell more lamps when they are plugged in and turned on.
I have to get back over to the paper work that comes with a new year and the end of the past year.
Think of me.....
