"For the artist communication with nature remains the most essential condition. The artist is human, himself nature, part of nature within natural space." Paul Klee

Monday morning I had the genuine pleasure of visiting with a true artist - Lisa Orr.

Lisa's pottery is truly an extension of her very person. Her art just bubbles with 
her personality. It's extraordinary to see what materializes in front of you. 

...and a wonderful conversationalist...we talked about...I'll drop names here;
Soetsu Yanagi, The Beatles, Fats Waller, The Third Man, Henri Cartier Bresson, Jimi Hendrix.... 

Gotta love that zone 4!!

 If you love pottery or just want to experience artistry that is enthralling and just drop dead gorgeously unique, please check out her web site: lisaorr.com

Top three images were made with a Nikon D7000 fitted with the 18-135mm lens. In addition to the ambient light I have an Alien Bee SB800 fitted with a 10 degree grid at 1/8th power on a stand to the left. The middle two images I added a 42 inch gold reflector just out of frame right. For image 3, I added a slight post-tilt to sepia.

From top - 1. ISO 400, f9, 1/200th, focal length 72mm
2. ISO 800, f5.3, 1/125th, 100mm
3. ISO 800, f5, 1/125th 46mm
4. I have my camera's U2 setting pre-selected for black and white with a bit of sharpness and the green filter.  Here I switched lens to the Nikkor 50mm, ISO 320, f4, 1/60th, exposure comp +0.7.

A huge Thanks to Lisa for her time and sharing her art...and she makes yummy coffee!!

Thanks for stopping.
Fresh from the kiln.
