Nephew tries slab technique

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Fri Mar 20, 2015 12:23 pm


two of my nephew's efforts. Earthenware clay, self dug and cleaned. To master this technique he has to make at least 5 more at the same size. I have however explained to him that there is no market down here for handmade Bonsai pots. So it back to studies after he glazes these two, and playtime will restart in June / July.

Slab built.

When I get some more time I will send the images of the pots glazed.

About 6" [ 15 cm ] long.

Coarsely grogged body - made as a birthday gift to me and very much appreciated !!!

Finely grogged body -

khai - when you mentioned in an email that he was attempting slab bonsai pots, i thought you meant the flat-ish slabs that folks tend to put forests on... i did not know that you meant slab walls joined to make what is considered a traditional bonsai pot...

that is one heck of a great first effort !!! ThumbsUp

tell him snake from milwaukee says so and he will think "who from where ???" scratch Razz
