Great pots, Peter. I love the koi theme, and I really like the way the crackle pots' stain works with the brushed artwork.

VERY EFFECTIVE... Wink

Hi Rob,
Hi John,
Hi Peter,

Thanks for the nice comment.

This crackle pots may look good,
I like them too, but unfortunately, a crackled glaze is not frost resistant.

These pots must be protected in winter.

I wish you all a Happy New Year. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Best regards
Peter

Hi,

These painted pots are gorgeous indeed!

One question about the frogs and rabbit scene - I've seen this on several japanese pots, is it some kind of folk tale? Google turned up nothing on this ...

Hello Stefan,

with Japanese tales and legends, I do not know me so well. Embarassed

The picture with the frogs and the rabbit is most likely from the animal-picture roles of Kozan (ca.1255.).

I will search again, but I think you're as fast as a computer specialist as I slowly potters. Very Happy

Peter

Hi Stefan,

after all I did find some more info on this pot, I think it is quite
interesting:

In the 13th century, in one of the great monasteries of Japan, a monk painter created scrolls with Buddhist or secular topics. Among others, the four scrolls with "Choju-giga" (satirical pictures of animals) are particularly famous. They are kept in the monastery Kozan-ji in the mountains northwest of Kyoto.
The first part, from which the scene on the pot is taken, consists of a series of compositions depicting humorous games of anthropomorphized animals. Monkeys, rabbits and frogs appear up as swimmers, archers, horsemen and wrestlers. The point is that in these games, the weaker one always wins over the stronger.

Since the drawings don't contain any text, there are different ways to interpret these scenes.

Here's a Wiki page on these scrolls with more information and additional pictures:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C5%8Dj%C5%AB-jinbutsu-giga

regards
Peter

Hi,

Peter, thanks a lot for the effort, it's great that you could find more background on these images! I've always wondered about them, and the scrolls are really fascinating.

Best regards,
Stefan

Hello pot lovers,

Here are the first pot of the year, and I hope it will be an exciting Bonsai year.


Size: 56 cm x 40 cm x 13 cm


Diameter: 42,5 cm x 10,8 cm height


Diameter: 21,5 cm x 7,3 cm height

Best regards
Peter

Hi Rob,
thanks for the nice compliment.

The pots have the "taste of the fire", only when they are 10 or 20 years of use they get a nice surface. Very Happy

Here are some of cascade pots. The first pot is a semi-cascade-pot.
The four other pots are cascade-pots.

By changing the feet, or by broadening the base, produces a slightly different picture.
Depending on what you have for a tree form, which is a very important aspect.


Size: 24 cm x 19,5 cm x 13 cm


Size: 14,5 cm x 14,5 cm x 16,3 cm


Size: 14,5 cm x 14,5 cm x 16,3 cm


Diameter: 17,5 cm x 10,5 cm height


Diameter: 17,5 cm x 10,5 cm height

regards
Peter

Bonsai pots must always be seen in relation to bonsai. If you look at them isolated, you might say that you don’t like decorated feet on bonsai pots much.

The cascade pots shown above are made exclusively for very delicately shaped bonsai like chinese junipers, for example. For black pines however, this kind of feet cannot be used, I would make straight plain feet for them instead.

For white pines, if they are delicately styled, ornate feet can be used. If the tree has a mixed appearance that is both feminine and masculine at the same time, straight feet with a slight arc can be chosen. White pines with a masculine shape need straight feet.

The same applies to the shape of the pot, like shown above. A pot with a narrow base that opens up wider towards the top is more suitable for feminine tree shapes. A pot with a wide base looks more massive and masculine and suits masculine tree shapes.

Every little detail of a pot is absolutely important for the whole look, it can complete a bonsai arrangement to perfection or spoil it.

Best regards
Peter

So a large pot is always for a potter a large challenge.

Four stages are it up to the goal, before one can make such a photo.
First stage is the pottery of the pot, the second stage is the dry pot,
and then the pot is still two times fired.



Size of the pot: 58 cm x 46 cm x 16,5 cm - wieght: 12 kg

pot are hand made without mould
fired to ca. 1220° C

regards
Peter
