From time to time I read photography magazines and blogs in the vague hope I can pick up a few tips to improve my photography for my website and other publicity tools. It's my least favourite job because my photographs never come out as brilliantly as I think they will (I have never so much appreciated the skill of professional photographers!)
Oh well, this just makes my efforts look feeble! by Wenzel Jamnitzer, from his book Perspectiva Corporum Regularium (Perspective of Regular Solids) 1568, which is full of amazing images like this. WJ was a German goldsmith and artist - not a geometrician or mathematician as I would have imagined. Working in the Northern Mannerist style, he was a court goldsmith, clearly extremely skilled, and must have been very important.
A few years ago I dreamed up a work to be titled Objects of the Earth Celebrate the Birth of the Sky. It was to comprise 80 - 100 smallish ceramic objects arranged on a low table or plinth on the floor, or even just on the floor. These objects were to have earth-related shapes and the fact they were ceramic and made of earth was important.
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
