Peter

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I adore your work and totally agree with Tony. Being a lover of Japanese and Chinese ceramics your work in a huge inspiration to me and my work. If you are trading at Noelanders then I look forward to meeting you and purchasing my first Krebs pot.

Tony

More than happy to get the beer in, as long as it's not Kasteel Embarassed Still buzzing over the weekend and sorry my secretary had to take your call Sunday afternoon had my eyes glued to the M6 Wink

All the best to you both

Superb pots Peter. I think that Andy and I will be fighting against each other at Noelanders to see who gets one of your pots first.

Hi Rob,

thanks for the nice compliment.

Each potters can learn something from another potter.

I see how alive you are here are in the forum, and ask lots of questions and you get up inspiration.

That's OK, You're standing in the middle of life, and there are many things of which there are pottery to be found.

I have also found far from everything that I want.

For example, I always fascinate even the ancient Chinese potters. They were used for pottery not only the great masters have one excellent pots, but all the nameless pottery workers survive the bread for her hard-earned with the pottery.
These are the true masters anonymous potters and artists. These potters are all our lines, I would have so many questions on this pottery, but I must find the answers alone.

Your pots are also an inspiration for me.

(I hope Google translate it correctly) Embarassed

Hi Tony, Andy and Simon

thank you for your nice assessment.

Again I can only write what I wrote to Rob, inspiration on the topic.

Unfortunately, I'm not by Marc, and I am very sad that I can't drink beer with you,
then I would have paid for a round of beer.

Should you stay for some time in Germany,
then we can drink with me once a barrel of beer. Very Happy

Drinking we here in a quarry.
(I'll bring my secretaries) affraid

Hello pot lovers

Unglazed pots are my great passion, my heart and my soul.
This clay is like a diva, very sensitive, and he does not forgive mistakes.
For me personally, this is the highest and most difficult kind of my pottery.
It will probably take a long time until I achieved the perfection which I aspire.

Here are a few round pots with this surface:


Diameter: 30 cm x 8,5 cm heigt


Diameter: 40 cm x 10 cm heigt


Diameter: 24 cm x 6 cm heigt


Diameter: 23 cm x 6 cm heigt

You have already achieved perfection. I wish I could finish the surface of my unglazed pots like this, they are beautiful

Hi Andy,

in what is the difference between my and your pots?

We both pottery pots for bonsai, and we must constantly strive to make pottery a good thing, that's all.
I too am far from where I'd like to go, it's always, reflect a new trial.

You are still young, and you will still discover many things, and pottery pots your needs.

Hi Libby,
thanks for the "WOW!"

Best regards
Peter

Peter,

As always, a great selection of pots. The craftsmanship of your unglazed bonsai containers is outstanding. As a bonsai potter myself, I know how hard it is to achieve these types of finishes on unglazed containers.

Do you use your own custom clay bodies or are these pots made from commercially available sources?

Thanks for taking the time to share.

Best wishes,
Paul

Hi Paul,

when you are potter for yourself, then you also know, how hard it is a special surface to achieve.

Creating a good finish to take just as long as the potters of the pot.

The experiment with a surface lasts a lifetime. If you even an unglazed 100 to 200 years old Chinese unglazed pot you've had in the hand, then you know what is a fine surface.
If you look at the inside of my pots, then you see that she looks different than the front, it is not the clay alone makes up a good finish.
The clay you need to do by yourself, the surface is a pottery technique.

Peter

If I can get the finish on my unglazed pots half as good as yours I will be a very very happy man. That's the difference Wink I have a way to go yet!

All the best

Peter,
Your collection of pottery photos is outstanding and world class!
I'm astounded that these shapes can be obtained without molds or even a wheel!! Wonderful!

I promise I won't ask how you accomplish such things. Very Happy Laughing
I fully understand the desire and need to protect technique methods . Some folks don't always understand this and often get upset if it isn't given to them freely. I imagine that is a similar situation in all arts and specialized fields though. The response from inquirers differs greatly depending on who you are!!

I seem to remember when at Mr. Kimura's house that when asked about the trees up on the roof of his studio and why no one was allowed up there he stated that it was the area where he tried "New Techniques".
I also note that on Dan's website he states openly that he does not give away glaze recipes that he's worked years to perfect.
These are all understandable responses to me. I have never seen anyone question them further.

Your work is 'Unique' and it wouldn't be for very long if you weren't guarded. I've looked long and hard at some of your pieces I've seen at shows here in the USA ( Particularly some at the WBC Wash. DC '05) and I for one would not like to see such skills and finishes made available to anyone who just wanted to know them.

Please keep up the great work for many years to come so we can all enjoy your 'trademark' art.

Hey potter-guys,

I can well understand, but I tell you, you still make all the excellent pots. Very Happy

It makes no sense a still living potters to copy, but you've already found your style, unlike me, I'm still looking.
I could not even begin to reconstruct pots like Dale , but I would only practice for many years, I can not work with the potter's wheel, like Andy or Rob, even for that I would practice for years.
It's actually it's not such a big secret I have studied for over 30 years old bonsai pots,
looking for old techniques,I have scanned with my fingers, knock on them to get the sound.

Ultimately, I'm almost at the end of my career, and now I am self a bonsai pot,
I have thrown everything into the balance, passion, curiosity, discipline and courage. This is the amount that constitutes pots of me.
All the effort and work goes into it, perhaps here:

http://www.peter-krebs.de/index.php?page=next-generation-2

Perhaps this is the future for me.

Thanks to you three, I hope I can still see many beautiful pots of you and admire.

(I hope Google does with such a long text does not limp)

Best regards
Peter
