Re: Surprise from my kiln

Post  peter krebs on Sun Feb 07, 2010 6:29 am

Searching for new bonsai pot surfaces takes a lot of patience. Only one out of a hundred tests might perhaps be good enough to be used for bonsai pots.
With a glaze, it is more simple. Unglazed surfaces are very difficult and it is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
There is old African unglazed ceramic with a high-gloss surface and it is still unkown how those ancient potters achieved it.
Despite feverish investigation, whether the clay was polished before the firing process with stones, leather or wood, this surface technique has not been found out so far.
Everything stays an adventure.



This pot was not polished and not glazed in the conventional sense, it has an applied surface. This surface suits white or red flowering or fruit-bearing bonsai very well. It is also very good for delicately styled junipers and white pines.

Best regards
Peter

Peter,

A very nice selection of glazed pots.

I particularly like the green glaze on the last pot. Nice character, it has good movement and visual depth. These are the qualities that I look for when developing a glaze.

I noticed from the photos that you use a lighter colored clay body for your glazed pots. Is this to show the glaze colors better?

Regards,
Paul

Hi Paul,

thank you for your evaluation.

Yes, the color of the clay is important for the glaze.

Hi Luis,

Thanks a lot for your appreciation!

Your own pots demonstrate a great mastery too. You should really start again with pottery! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Architecture and pottery complement each other well.
Both come from the past and reach far into the future.
Ceramics can even reach many thousand years into the future, and it's exciting to be part of it!

Best regards
Peter

Melatonin goodbye, the spring comes, and with him the joy of life.

LISTEN, THE NIGHTINGALE
IN THE BLOSSOMS, AND THE FROG,
CROAKING IN THE WATER –
DOES NOT EACH OF THEM SING ITS SONG,
LIKE THE POET DOES HIS POEM?
... and the painter does his painting, the potter his jug? Like this, one could continue the spring poem of an unknown japanese artist. For sensible people spring is not only a feast for the eyes in the flowing world of creation and decay. It is fireworks for all senses, the great symbol of creation.
Shunga, which are also called spring pictures, are one facette of japanese art. They have the same power and mysterious magic as tea ceremony, the art of gardens and poems (Haiku, Tanka) for example and they are still highly appreciated in modern Japan. Spring pictures often have a double meaning. They are erotic illustrations that, in combination with the great adoration of nature, show an exhilarated lightness.
Often little erotic books were made from Shunga that men put discreetly beneath the pillow of their adored ones but they were also used as illustrations of various novels and plays.
Some scenes contain elements of caricature. The pleasures of love are universal and around the planet artists have pictured them freely, in which way ever, veiled or unveiled.

Hello Andy,

But, what is a master?, "The potter always works in a bent position."

Peter,

What a breath of fresh air, your spring pots. Quite playful yet carried out with such traditional artistic finesse. Smile

I also love the surface effect of that last oval. The variation of in the glaze surface is lovely and will make a great home for bonsai.

Thanks for sharing!

Your painted pots are beautiful Peter. They make me wonder how the erotic motif would go over here in the USA in a bonsai show?
Also, the potted pots are just gorgeous.
