Eliza | Ceramics Session

The other week, I all of a sudden both very clearly and very randomly had a vision of photographing someone in a wheel throwing session. Wheel throwing is the amazingly beautiful art of shaping clay on a spinning pottery wheel. It's a tricky skill to master (I know, I took a couple classes in college and still never quite got the hang of it), but results are so worth it in the end. This was something pretty far from the comfort of what I normally shoot, and Eliza very graciously accepted the challenge. We had a lot of fun just hanging out in Mary Washington's ceramic studio, listening to music and inevitably getting covered in clay dust. Enjoy this cool shoot!
