I took these shots earlier this afternoon. The following shots were taken earlier this week and later in the afternoon. I particularly love the raking light at this time of year. Anyway I played with these earlier images and here are the results.

Aviemore Pottery Vase
'As readers of this blog will know' I like Studio Pottery. One of my favourite marks is 'Aviemore Pottery'. I remember buying odd bits as a child on holiday in Scotland mainly as presents for relatives. I did also buy for myself. Life being what it is I managed to loose the meagre collection I had, and it's really only in the last few years since I got on line that I have started collecting again. I purchased this lovely vase a few weeks ago. I must confess to the odd doubt when I realised how small it is. The fears however were groundless; it is a wonderful piece with a depth and quality to the glaze I think is marvellous, and deeply tactile, enhanced by the size and shape of the body. I also enjoy the contrast between the white inside the neck of the vase and the dark intensity of the outside glaze.
