A Trip Down Memory Lane - Pots from My Past

Post  Luis Fontanills on Wed Feb 24, 2010 12:23 am

I haven't made any pots since 2004; maybe I should start up again? Here are a sampling of pots from my past between the year I started 2000 to 2004 in no particular order. These are all cone 6 fired stoneware with different clay bodies.

Land and Moat Pot - multifunctional; use for chips and dips also. 'Very Happy'

Very Happy

Dear Luis

So good You share Your pots, lovely to see them again !

The pot shape rizing from the clay-mountain shape are very powerful.
The total pot is as a source of energy, wonderful !

The richness of the red/beige/blue-ish glaze is stunning !!!!
Is this glaze a cristal glaze ?

My appology for not mailing You back.
I enjoyed seeing Your other work very much
and was impressed and inspired !
I would like to be in touch with You again if it is oke with You?
Kind regards

Whaddya mean "Maybe I should get back into it again"!!

If this is representative of the quality of your work, I should damn well get out into the shed immediately if I were you!

Beautiful pots, Luis.

A Big Thanks!

Hello all, and thank you all for your compliments and input. I have recently returned to admire the many works by you on this bonsai pot forum, and it has reignited my own interest in starting up again. Again thank you all.

BTW, I have been a member of the IBC since January of 1997, though I have wandered away at times it always remains a friendly and welcoming place that I cannot stay away from.

Potter's Memory

Hi Klaudia,
I think that throwing is like riding a bicycle, the skill remains even after much time has passed.

In the last few days I have been making mental pictures of new pots and visualizing throwing and building them; let's hope it translates to actually doing Very Happy

Another from the past - yellow glaze.

Dear Luis

The last pot You show , that is what the most attracktive and genuine
is in Your ceramic work and i admire this very much.

Your pots have the clear shape continuation, basic shapes with
as the balance contradiction a full and rich glaze
or sometimes a totally amorf shape.
You are very good in this and yes there is much more to explore.
Looking forward to see,discus more.
Kind regards

Form & Glaze

Post  Luis Fontanills on Sat Feb 27, 2010 6:30 pm

Morea,
Thank you for your input; I agree with your perception of my early pottery work. I always try to get to an essential form, simplify to its essence, even on the more amorphous forms. The glaze adds an element of complexity on the form; pot form as canvas, and glaze as painterly surface.

I will probably experiment more with strong architectural/sculptural forms by also incorporating slab built elements. My future aim is to primarily create contemporary pots that are not bound by tradition, though I highly admire those traditional forms as well.

As Yogi said:
"It's deja vu all over again" ! Very Happy

Are you still going to the Miami Club meetings?
I haven't seen you at a BSF convention since my 2nd one in Ft. Lauerdale 11 years ago!
I did see a couple of your tiny pots at Al Soares' in Miami a couple years ago.
