steve irvine’s ceramic pinhole cameras

Last month when I was gathering information to write a post about paper artist Elly MacKay I made a note that her father is a ceramic artist who makes (among other things) pinhole cameras. As an avid photographer, the concept fascinates me. Today I finally had time to look at Steve Irvine’s ceramic pinhole cameras and the images he creates with them. Still fascinated!

Irvine’s pinhole cameras are fully functional – the cameras have no lens, light meter, viewfinder, or automatic shutter – the photo of orchids (above) shows us that none of that is necessary to produce beautiful, high quality images.
