Pot piddling

Post  Rob Kempinski on Fri Feb 27, 2009 8:23 pm

I made acouple of shohin pots last month. Nothing special.

The first one was hand carved from a block of clay.



The second one was from a mold I made several years ago.

I really like the blue piece. The glaze breaks nicely on the edges and really shows off the form. It looks like it could have been made 300 years ago. Nice job!
Also, could you explain your avatar?

Nice pots Rob. I like them.

I'm going to guess that Robs avatar is some sort of golf club testing machine, an auto-driver if you will. Laughing
Am I right Rob?

Yep, Iron Byron.

After all I am the bonsai golfer.

BTW can you name a famous bonsai golfer?

Ah, you've got me there. I have no idea, but I hope it's Arnold Palmer. I work for Orlando Health / Arnold Palmer Hospital.

Nice pots Rob.

Does the blue glaze in the second pot have any manganese or ilmenite (granular iron) bleeding through?

Hi Rob,

a good work your pots, like your website.
Too your first pot, this technique is still used by Japanese potters. It is a hard work if you want to look at the photos. Unfortunately, the text is still in German, Embarassed but later translated into English. Laughing

Technique photos are at the end of the article.

Many greetings

Rob - I am a pot hacker. The glaze is a commercial glaze so I have no knowledge of the chemical composition.
I just lathered it on thickly. Actually I used two separate glazes but didn't record which - like I said - a hacker.
I leave my surgical precision to the golf course. bounce

Thanks Peter.
Mr Fujikake's technique is pretty much what I do but he is much more skilled; I'm just a hacker.
I have found that some wood working tools work pretty well for leveling the clay.

I really like the painted scenes. Are the pots bisque fired and then the scenes painted on? I'll have to look into the paints. It would be interesting to try painting some western theme scenes on some pots - like the New York city skyline - one with the World Trade Center and the other side without.

Hi Rob,

New York City skyline, World Trade Center, Golden Gate, etc., on pots to paint is a super idea. Laughing Laughing Laughing
Fujikake makes ceramic and porcelain. It's easy for you, first you burning your pots, either ceramic or porcelain. Then once you have a paint-glaze on, then with an airbrush, a transparent glaze on the pan and burn low.


Diameter: 14,2 x 10,3 inch
This is an approximately 100-150 year old porcelain pot from China in the blue-white technology.
This is the highest quality.



This is a copy of the pot of my hand without a mould pottery. (it’s Ceramic not porcelain) with black paint glaze. The picture shows the back of the original pot.

Many greetings

Peter.
