A while back I put up a post with a carved slip square plate with a scimitar grass design. In the haste of getting things finished, the pot was fired and packed up without a picture taken. In the cycle I am working in now, I made a couple of the square plates with the scimitar grass decoration and took a moment to take a quick in situ photo as the pots aren't due until October giving me a few extra moments to pause and think things through. I know this plate is a bit different than the last and photographing the carved pieces is a nightmare as they don't show any of the charm and folky quality of the pieces and come off as a bit harsh. Until I become a professional photographer this will have to due and you will just have to take my word for it that they are far less shiny and harsh in person.
