Good eye Dick!...ThumbsUp 
Thanks for posting that very interesting kusamono
Nice to see a really different style accent pot...cyclops 
Gives me the feeling of an over flowing cornucopia
Has room to add a couple of other small flowering plants,
fun thought, maybe even colored foliage ones...Suspect  
Have been unable to find anyone who will make those nice flat dark clay jiitas.
do you know the potter or just the owner of the accent pot...Basketball

While I'm waiting for mr Woods to get back to making pots this winter, i did find this imposture. It reminds me of what I used to see in wishing well displays. Was thinking I could make something of a canopy out of popsycle sticks to complete the look. there are several plants referred to as money trees that could work. I really like the movement on gary's pot but this will give me something to play with till I can get an original. Smile

I wonder if the potter will see your 'compliment' on his work here?No

The potter who made the white pot is a club member and an olde friend. I've already razzed him about no movement in his "copy"
but all in good spirits.

I commend you for your sensitivity to others, but typical of chatlines and emails, background information, facial and tonal inflections
often get lost in this media.

About half of my pot collection comes from dan and he knows he has my support.

Dick, I'm sure the potter , whoever it is, appreciates your support.
In my opinion, for a 'grass pot' it is just fine and equal to HUNDREDS I see every year online and for sale from all over the world. There is no end, and few rules, to grass pot designs and many are made from scraps which sometimes limits just how creative you can get no matter how much time you give them( I make many grass pots from slab built pot scraps like this L&W one I fired back in January). In many cases it's not actually the pot design that becomes important, but the initials scratched on the bottom.

Please put something in that one that will let the artist know you appreciate it.

I think what I favor in the last photo is the over all combination of blue and brown and yet the top cavity is brown, indicating something from the earth to be plopped in there, and the bottom cavity is blue indicating what you would expect to emminate from water. Smile

I could picture some kind of cascading plant from the top (maybe Ivy), while the lower cavity might be filled with Iris or pitcher plant.
Kusamono is fun....

I think when a potter makes color Hints as i mentioned earlier, It's akin to having a scroll maker post their chop confirming the directional movement of ther art work. helpful

The bottom cavity is actually for water. Looks great in display.
I make a lot of these for kusimono.
