Andrew Widdis is an Australian potter with a fascination for photography:
“The final act. I often wonder, and suspect it true. That I really make vessels to photograph. I have always enjoyed the process of arranging and framing a shot; and to come up with a new way to find interest in an inanimate object is quite exciting. I guess the need for an interesting subject informs the need for development in the potter’s studio. So one informs the other.”
His most recent solution is to present the works within circles of light. It’s a visually exciting presentation that mimics his process. It suggests throwing rings but without the connection seeming trite. More than that the light seems to levitate the pots as though they are floating in an astral plane. We have included an earlier photograph of his work to demonstrate how the pots are glamorized by the new photography. The key to getting publicity for your work now is interesting presentation and an “old” style could easily have slipped by our content scanning but the new images are riveting.
