Real cameras made from clay


One of my lifelong interests has been photography. I spend almost as much time with it as I do with pottery. It only seems natural that the two passions should come together, and these ceramic cameras are the result.

These are fully functional pinhole cameras. They have no lens, light meter, viewfinder, or automatic shutter, and yet they can produce gallery quality images. I use black and white photo paper in them for the negatives. The negatives are either 4 x 5 inches, or 5 x 8 inches… More at Steve Irvine.

A little odd, but I like the strangeness of these creations.
