Some pots for the new gallery

Post  Dale Cochoy on Thu Feb 26, 2009 8:22 pm

I thought I would try posting a few new(er) pots into the new site gallery. After a few tests and some help I THINK I got it right?
Let me know if these look right posted.

First are two Bamboo wrapped carved logs. unglazed. Longest is about 10 inches .

They look good from here!

The carved logs are really neat. Though unglazed, I note an interesting surface sheen. I'm curious whether that's some sort of wash or sprayed flux or just a trait of the particular clay body. Whichever, I like it.

Thanks for the help John.

Here is a better picture of the shorter bamboo/carved log. It was about 6" long total. I don't usually spend this much time on a pot that small but I made it especially for Irene Britton.

A couple shohin about 6-7" across.
I've been doing quite a few versions of these pots in many sizes and shapes. I call these "Dry Riverbed Pots" since they resemble the dry, cracked mud on a riverbed or lake floor.

Dale,
Nice pots as always, good to see this site up and running again. I have been playing with this techinique as well only titled "lizard skin", or "alligator skin".

Nice pots fellas,
Are we seeing a new trend in bonsai pots? I've seen the sodium silicate technique in mainstream ceramics, but it seems like it has real potential in the bonsai world. I like how you use slips to fill the cracks and glazes to cover it all. I wonder what it would look like to use a slip in the cracks that has a chemical that reacts with the overglaze. With copper in the slip and a little tin in a blue celadon over top, and with a reduced kiln you would have red cracks on a pale blue background. Or cobalt slip with a shino over. Shocked

Andy,

A couple of questions:

Are you adding your sodium silicate to a slip, glaze or both?

To what percentage are you adding them to each/either?

The gas kiln certainly brings out the stained crackles better than the electric kiln.
the large ovals shown were first in the system and elctric fired. Only a few were gas fired. They are piling up.
Here are two that show the difference well.
Top is gas fired and bottom is electric fired.
