Pots

Post  bonsaipotter on Sun Dec 30, 2012 8:53 am

And thank you both for the feedback. I can only fully recommend a ceramics course, you'll have a lot of fun.

On my blog I've posted about a couple of pots I've had for many years. Can anyone help with identification - here are the chops. I'm pretty sure the second one is Tokoname but can't find it on any of the published sources.





Thanks,
Happy Potter

Tried my hand today, for a first pot of 2013, at a mock rock pot.



This first picture is as finished in nice wet clay. It will have an arch and be supported on both ends only. After firing it should finish up at a little over 300mm long. I'm thinking of just applying a stain to get mostly in the cracks and crevices and otherwise rely on the buff colour of the mature clay. Being stoneware it will be nice and impervious to water.

The second picture is a photoshop montage of what a finished result might look like.

A few shihin sized pots

Post  bonsaipotter on Sun Mar 24, 2013 11:04 am

I've ventured into smaller pots recently and produced a number of shohin sized ones from 175 toi 185 long and 45 to 50 high. It is surprising how much time a small pot still takes both in the making and in the glazing and into and out of kilns etc. But quite rewarding and nice to turn out a variety of shapes with less complexity than the larger pots.

Rock slab pot

Post  bonsaipotter on Fri Nov 22, 2013 10:36 am

Interesting recnt commission to create a rock slab pot. The climate here in Australia suggested it needed a concave space to hold a bit more soil and moisture so this was the result. Ended up at 555 x 360 x 45 mm, stoneware coloured with underglaze fired to cone 6. Should look good with a tree about 600mm high.
