Gallery Cruising – Ceramic Art

Looking at ceramic art online is sometimes deceptive because the pieces are generally photographed on a plain background and the dimensionality can’t easily be ascertained  to get an idea of the  the actual size. Even when you know the dimensions it’s still a challenge to conceptualize. Depending on the image editing, the texture can also be difficult to judge. Visiting a gallery has a distinct advantage in this regard. The upside with galleries online is you get to scope places that you might never get to see.

Pottery and ceramics are a good fit with galleries because they are generally compact and are usually not dependant on walls for display and can be featured in narrow spaces. The pottery shapes respond favourably to good lighting , and can be highlighted to enhance their styles and colours. I’ve assembled some  images from various galleries.
