The 2020 the coronovirus lockdown gave me the opportunity to re-engineer Ceramike.com as a new website - MikesPots.co.uk. Ceramike will remain as a legacy site for the forseeable future but will no longer be updated. It was designed way back in 2002 when most people used Internet Explorer on Windows computers, those days are long gone and we now have multiple devices, operating systems and web browsers, MikesPots site has been designed with that in mind.

Having become interested in macro photography, I decided to look at glaze effects on some of my pots, so I hope these images will be of interest. These are high definition images so if your device allows it, you will be able to zoom in and pan around to see more detail. Although I have left no clues I have no doubt that some of you will be able to work out the potters concerned. If not just click on an image and the pot and its maker will be revealed.

The images were taken with my Fujifilm X-T2 using a 10mm extension tube fitted on the standard 18-55mm lens. Perhaps one day I will invest in a dedicated macro lens.

These are my first attempts at this type of photography, if you have any suggestions or similar images to share please contact me.
