This is a very nice selection of pots and finishes Tom.

Your forms are excellent and the finishes are great.

I especially like the detail on the feet.

The patterns you have developed are very complimentary to the shape of the pots.

Your fire with wood, correct?

Best wishes,
Paul

Hey Tom,

I love how your pots are developing! Lots of expression and character is evident in your work.

Love the lotus and other classical forms, and like Paul mentions, the feet are very interesting. Very Happy

Thanks for sharing,
Rob

Good to see some pots from you again, Tom! I really like your lotus pots and as always the variations of the feet.

That big classic pot is a stunner! Superb quality of the claywork and really nice claycolour.

Fun to see your daughter´s pot, she seems to have talent =). My oldest son(3,5) loves to play around with the clay, but no pots from him yet....

Hi friends!

The problem with the picture goes to small display on one of my computers.

Andy, happy to have met You too, but it was too short. I hope next time I'll have more time to talk to You, maybe on the evening party :-) Last time I had to rest instead.

Paul, yes, I fire with wood. This was my 16th firing and I still learn to work with my "Beast". This time I was a succesful jockey. Maybe I've learned something. And I found that my kiln runs like a beast even when eating an old, little wet and little rotten 10-11 old wood! And the pile of wood is still big. Have to build the same pile of pots :-).

Tomas - Your son is maybe still just watching and then he'll show us! My friend didn't speak to his age of 3. His parents were afraid. But suddenly he said a long complicated sentence. The surprised parents asked, why didn't say anything before. He said "I had nothing to say".

To all - thank You for comments on my shapes, feet, finishes.
Sometimes it is possible to try something new, then comes period of reproducing, improving skills and procedure. I can't stop to make lotus pots, that work pleases me.

Bravissimo Tom.
Are you a good potter, the lotus flower vases I like a lot, who knows that ....


Tom Benda wrote:Having not posted here a long time, I have to show You some few pots, which made me satisfied :-)
First of all, my little daughter's work, made around her 5th birthday, maybe sooner, not later.
I love the front side wall, it's so nice pot, it makes me almost happy-crying!



I've got a little problem with my camera and my brother's camera is "supersonic", nothing for me.
Unfortunately, colours are not true.
That's bad especially for this one - the glaze is beautiful dark blue, thin, a little glossy. Looks like very old original blue decorated pot :-)



Now two pots of same design and sizes, different clay and finish.
I tried some new lotus with "my" backrolled feet:





I tried "decentralized", assymetric rose flower like shaped feet, two leaves.



Having not enough lotus pots, which I really love to build, I tried to apply one of my designs here:



How did this get into my kiln? I think the bell glass cover melted and nothing could survive inside. Or... ?!



Beautiful lovely shohin size:



And I had to build this classic, I was thinking about it for a long period.
The biggest classic I ever made. An the sound out of it! We are at the same wave with this pot. He answers me, when I'm talking!



I had really great feelings, when opening my kiln this time. I'm still full of it, it goes through my whole body, giving me maybe more power and energy than I am able to give now! Very Happy


P.S.: Is the allowed width of the pics 800 pixels? I thought so, but, the pictures miss some of their right sides...
