Spalling error

Post  JimLewis on Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:00 pm

It hasn't gotten THAT cold here yet this year, but this little Tokonome ware pot decided it had had enough and spalled off all of its outer surface. I've seldom quite seen this before and never on what was supposed to be a quality pot.

Hi Jim

What a pity for you....it must have been a bad crafted pot.. Not all Tokoname pots are hight quality.

Kind regards Yvonne

At last. Something worse than a spelling error.
Sorry, I can't help it.  Embarassed

It happens all the time with Japanese and Chinese pots. Even expensive ones!

Tokoname









Good quality Chinese

Wow, Jim AND Dale!

I've never seen that, even in the 3 years in Japan going through winters that I never want to experience again.

Jim, can you show the chop on your pot? I'm curious.

Over the years I've seen that a lot here in NE Ohio with some quite expensive Japanese pots. Especially slip cast stuff which I'm not thinking is fired near as high as most folks hand-made pots, and I'm sure the clays are not as quality on the norm either.
Sometimes folks ask if my pots are as winter hardy as Japanese pots and I usually answer "Most Assuredly" .
But, in their defense, freezing and thawing pots in the north is tough on any of them if you don't have a storage space to keep them dormant without freezing in winter.

Here it is. Dunno what side is "up."
