2013 Portage trust Ceramic awards


Every year for the past five years , I have had the pleasure of photographing the Trusts Portage Ceramic Awards

Helen Yau – Lace city






Organised  by the curator and staff of Lopdell house, the awards attract a large number of entries from New Zealand and international artists working in ceramics.

Portage trust16

Sam Ducker -Jones – A headstand with Lloyd in 1988

Portage trust15

Rachel Carter – Solitude in numbers

Portage trust14

Owen Bartlett – Quake stone

The artworks can be challenging to photograph as they vary in shape, size and texture . The abstract nature of many of the artworks means presenting them as sympathetically  as possible to the artist’s vision , and shooting them in a format that is consistent with the demands of the catalogue design .
