Very attractive little pots. I'd like to see some kind of foot on all of them. When they sit flat on a table, they don't drain well (at all).

Thank you for comments.

Some bonsai mini pots that I made not long ago. They were fired at the first step at 500°C during 5 hours to eliminate the water. The second firing began a day later at 900°C during 10 hours. The last firing started 2 days later at 1210°C during 12 hours. The thickness of the pot is about 3mm.

I used non toxic and lead free glazes as the glazes we use for tableware.

I like the pot with the turtle attached. I've always wondered how those stay attached. Is it a special cement?

Hello, the turtle figure has a 0.15mm high temperature wire armature at its neck, tail  and legs to avoid broken pieces during the worldwide shipping for clients. Then, the whole figure is attached to the pot with the same high temperature needle armature and fired  from room temperature till 1210°C during 12 hours.

I do the same way for my mudmen figures. All the body articulation has (the thumb, legs, arms, neck...) a metallic framework to support the shipping.

Hi Alexandra, how are you doing? At my side, I'm preparing for a bonsai show next to Paris this weekend.

Fabulous work. The detail in your mud men is outstanding. And your pots are exquisite. I like the painted pots very much also. The pot with the heart shaped red autumn leaves and blue berries is excellent. Very nice. Thank you for sharing.
