Peter,
I too appreciate your reserve to keep your secrets on your techniques. I totally respect that. We bonsai potters are in such a small niche, that when we develop a technique that lends to our own personal style and identity we need to keep it to ourselves. Although some things, general things, can be easliy shared, we can draw the line when it comes to our own hard earned self directed research.

Yep, rock on Peter Cool

Hi Dale,

the tiny plants "of hoping" to be maintained very carefully, otherwise it will not be with my future.

Luisa has only two pots pottered. One I bought her,
the other has sold them at an exhibition in order to increase their pocket money. cheers

I think if Kev starts the next or the one after that auction, they will donate a pot.

regards
Peter

Hi Rob,

something of their own to create the pot pottery is very difficult, because it has given all before.
Many small mosaic pieces to wear with his own style to be found.

My whole knowledgment of pots I share with the searcher. Idea
I've written over 150 articles on pots, and twice as many are still in process, if I create everything in my life, I do not know.

The one who takes the trouble to read all the articles, the answer to my pottery found here.

regards
Peter

The study of old pots and pottery techniques for me is the foundation of my pottery.
Decorating a bonsai pot belongs to the high art of pottery. I admire Chinese potter- woman, they can without a template and shapes, plants, animals and entire landscapes conjure up on the surface of a pot. I've seen videos how they model it, like painted with a paint brush.

I tried it too, and now I know how hard it is for a beginner to work with this technique. It takes years or decades to acquire such ease and finesse.

In this comparison to these works modeled my pots look coarse.

This technique is somewhat easier to make pottery.

I love all pots you show here Peter, but the dragon pots beat them all, wonderfull detail in those oriental dragons.
One day Peter I have to have one of those dragons at my home, but I have seen the prices and know I will have to save several years for a perfect pot like this.
Soon I will buy a special cabinet for my crystal goods and some special bonsaipots like the butterfly one I have from you and Marc.

Kind regards

Peter

Those are wonderful pots Peter, especially the dragon pots. Several times I looked at a dragon pot of yurs that Jim Doyle had for sale from his trip to Europe.!
I'm curious. Since you aren't using molds or a wheel, how many pots do you figure you make in a years time?
Is this your sole job or a part-time passion?

Hi Rob,

thank you for your beautiful comment.

To establish such a dragon pot, you have to go at least two to three times the shirt.
That is so like milking mice! Laughing

Hello Dale,

thank you also for your beautiful comment.

For approximately 40 years (Flouwer Power Hippie-time) I had a dream. I managed a small printing shop, and my dream was to get out with 50 years, and my hobbies into a profession do.
And so I got out with 50 years, had used for pottery bonsaipots, built Japanese gardens, (my motorcycle license), and several fitness trainers completed training.
That was 16 years ago, now it's slowly time in which a new life begins. I'm building for a year no more gardens, the potters have limited time to myself, (I have never counted the pots which I used for pottery in a year, because that reduces the quality.

I think I can now look forward to the next completely relaxed "wild years". cheers cheers cheers

regards
Peter

This is the pot I've looked at several times at Jim Doyles booth at shows we both vend at.





" I have never counted the pots which I used for pottery in a year, because that reduces the quality."

I was curious about how many you figured you complete in a year since all are very time consuming. Do you often work on multiple pots at once or only one at a time?

Hi Dale,

I always make pottery only a pot for so long until it is finished, and if it takes three days should be.
The concentration is always focused on a pot.

On the various decorations on bonsai pots, I have written here already.

http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/pots-f3/pots-to-paint-t703.htm


Here's now the last and most difficult technique underglaze painting
Underglaze Painting
Underglaze painting belongs to the most difficult glazing techniques. It requires special knowledge of glaze characteristics and sleight of hand.
There are several ways of execution.
I fire my pots first at approximately 1220° C. Then the chosen picture or pattern is painted on it. Afterwards a transparent glaze is applied with great care so that the picture won’t get blurred.
Then I fire the pots again at 1080° C. Only after the second firing process it shows whether the pot is a success.

Replica of an ancient Chinese pot - size: 22 cm x 22 cm x 15 cm











The pot are hand made without mould


I wish all bonsai- and pot lovers "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year"

Best regards
Peter
