Pottery Paradigm Shift

Post  juniper07 on Sat Aug 31, 2013 6:14 pm

Recently, I have been viewing a lot of Kokufu Album pictures from multiple editions... and I experienced a slight paradigm shift in the way I viewed quality pots for a show.

What I encountered were pots with chips in multiple Kokufu shows. Ofcourse, most of those were older pots... but still it was something I did not expect. To estimate, I would say around 1 out of 10 of the pots had chips in them.

So the bottom line is that if you have a really high-end expensive pot like an antique Chinese or a Japanese Syuzan, Tofukuji, quality pots with a few chips, then it is okay to show. Not to mention, pots with a few chips will be more affordable than the same pot in mint condition. Ofcourse, I always look out for deals.

I did see a few Kokufu pots with surface scratches or threadline cracks as well. Ofcourse, structural cracks (that are not repaired well) will probably be an issue.
