Surprise from my kiln

Post  peter krebs on Sat Aug 29, 2009 12:10 pm

Hello Pot lover,

here are some new pot from kiln.
These are pots for flowering and fruit-bearing bonsai.



Diameter: 38 cm x 8,5 cm
This pot is for a dark red azalea. The pot should 38 cm x 36 cm x 8.5 cm are. A round bowl but would not have been as optimal.
Then I potter a round pot with different size sheets in the pot, it is indeed round, but now has more excitement.
If the azalea has been transplanted here I will publish a photo.


The red pot is an eye-catcher, almost erotic. A pink flowering azalea would be a good fit.
Diameter: 24 cm x 6,5 cm


This is a very feminine form and the glaze is neutral.
Size: 31,5 cm x 26,5 cm x 8 cm


Size: 35 cm x 26,5 cm x 5,8 cm

Diameter: 19 cm x 8 cm
In this pot would fit knows something blooming.

All the pots was without mould and without a potter's wheel handmade,
at about 1220 ° C

Best regards
Peter

I find an interesting interpretation of classical forms with your own personal artistry. Your glazes are quite effective too!

Great craftsmanship and technique.

Thank you all for the nice compliment, but the potter is not important,
important for bonsai are only the pots. Very Happy

Hello pot lovers
here again pots with a different glaze.


This pot is in size and shape as the above first presented pot. This dark glaze that makes the difference, because this glaze is for a white or pink flowering azalea thought very tenderly.


Again, this pot is meant for such a flower colour.


This glaze color e.g. is particularly well suited for red flowering bonsai.


... and again for this very delicate flower.

It is important and very exciting when selecting pots to note the colour.

Peter

Peter, beautiful pots. I am always impressed by your attention to matching pot glaze to flower/fruit. If you would sir, what would you recommend for a lavender colored flower?

Hello Ed,

It's always better when you see the color original.

Here are some examples:

If the tree is young, fit these colours:




If the tree is old, fit these colors:

Thank you for your response. I actually have a blue pot for one of my lavender crape myrtles that I'm developing. I'm glad to see I was not off on my choice.

Rob, I think we will eventually talk about a pot for my larger crape myrtle.

Hello pot lovers,

Here also is an example of the secrets of color.
The shape of this pot is very old, it is still pottery.
I have this pot without a mould form, because they told me so much.


It is for an old white flowering azalea very good, so the upper lip of the bowl to the outside shows the strong Azalee Nebari have.
The white flowers fit well with the old-looking green glaze. The colors mean freshness and purity. The clouds feet emphasize the feminine character.


This pot, also from my pottery is unglazed and has at the top of a thunderclap meanders. The dark brown color and the thunder-meanderings make the pot masculine.
I now plant a white flowering azalea knows it, shows the white color of the flower extremely feminine.
It is incredible how now the pure virginal white of the delicate flower emerges.
Removes you have up to three or five flowers all the other flowers, there is an incredible feeling of tenderness and transience of the moment.
There is a feeling like the music you unfortunately can not hold.

Here are some examples of glazes






Best regards
Peter

Peter

The last pots, same style different glazes, are totally WOW affraid As Rob says the coiling technique is perfect, they don't even look like they have been coiled.
I am going to have to get a small pot from you to add to my ever growing collection.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the nice compliment.

The technique for making pottery is called in Germany
"construction technology" or "slab build".

I can not, unfortunately, as you make pottery on a potter's wheel. Embarassed

BUTTERFLY POTS

A butterfly --
What dream
is making your wings flutter?
Chiyo-ni



Butterfly pots - that's how I call the random results of my pottery.

The elements earth, fire, water and air are the potter's allies, and a potter needs to learn to be in accord with them. Each element contains hatred and love, becoming and passing, life and death. A creation can succeed or fail, the potter can't anticipate it. Only after opening the kiln, a moment of incredible suspense, success or failure is revealed.





So it happens that sometimes, after opening the kiln and letting it cool down, I have a pot in my hands of which I don't know how it was created, don't know what its relation was to the four elements, which circumstances it was exposed to. The pot is like a butterfly sitting on my hand.

Butterfly pots are not reproducible, and this is what makes them so special.





When looking at these pots I realize that pottery means giving a "soul" to the clay. It's not just the hands of the potter that create a work of art, the work is also influenced by forces that are unknown, unimagined and not manipulable.

Best regards
Peter

Peter, I am confused a bit about this statement. Does this mean that all your pieces are built only from slabs?

Anyway, thanks for posting here for us to share and comment. Lovely forms and colors.

Hello you three great potter.

Thank you for the evaluation, an assessment of a potter's important,
because only a potter knows how long it takes to be a good pot to make pottery.

Each of you has found its own way.

It's nice the way to go together.

Rob,
everything is just-slab build, but unfortunately
I have no potter's wheel, like most potters here in the IBC.

I'd go beyond that and say incredibly talented and patient man - to build these from slabs without a mold is practically beyond belief. What talent!!!!
