WHOA! I've been sketching out some extruded tray ideas, but I don't have an extruder. Smart, huh? That is a top notch solution and it allows for more individuality. Thanks for taking the time Andy! thumbs up

Very interesting Andy.
He doesn't talk much Very Happy
A small group. How did this come about?


It'll be interesting to see how many of his ideas we see here over the next couple months? Smile

Koie san only spoke Japanese but had an interpreter. The group was only about 15 people. I saw an advert for it in a magazine here in the UK called Ceramic Review. Tickets were £15 each, cheap.

The best thing I took away was the stretch dishes in the first video. I am not sure if I would employ too much in the bonsai pot world. The biggest thing it has taught me is to go with your feelings and your heart and not in a logical fashion. We shall see Wink

I have friends who throw slabs for construction in the manner he did, but not with a curved wall. It's an elegant solution. I could see someone throwing slabs for bonsai pot construction and adding texture and throwing marks you could never achieve by rolling or hammering slabs. Its also more fun on the wheel... Very Happy

That is kind of what happened when i went to Paul Soldners 2-day demos. An ad in a local paper for the small local art museum . It was $50 for two days and only about 20ish people there.
I learned many off-the-cuff ideas and one I have used ever since in my bunjin pots. He made a couple large assembled wall hangings and threw several tea bowls ( that were more like large cereal bowls!) . he was fun to watch. The ladies got ALL the attention and he had his sandled-feet toenails painted orange!He also does/did bonsai and showed a few slides of some of his trees. We talked a bit about bonsai( but not long as he had women to talk too ! Very Happy ) and I brought him one of my "WildThings" t-shirts the second day.

Thanks, Andy. Great videos, music selection, & production values. The potter as well as the V & A Museum are very generous in sharing, and your thoughtfulness is immense.

Andy,
inspired me to look at the wider world of potters.
I found this site on Youtube.

At last I own a Koie San piece from his work at the Leach Pottery at St Ives

Post  Stone Monkey on Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:16 pm

Well this is as far as I could stretch. I would have loved to buy one of his Chawan but the gallery I found in London that was selling what Koie san made at the St Ives pottery this year was a little to much for my pocket, £500. One day though one day. For the time being here is the Sake cup that I purchased from the gallery in London. Porcelain, wood fired slight "Sang de Boeuf" glaze on the piece. Stands approx 3" high x 1' diameter, cost £70

Hello all,
these two busts I made in early times :-) when I wasn´t bonsai potter at all,
but I bisque-fired them this week.
The one with bigger head is older, made in my age of 14, the second in 15.
Today I started to think about them as an "accent twain". The little difference in their size can evoke the image of perspective.

I really like them. Very expressive with very little expression on their faces. They would look fantastic smoke fired or Raku'd

All the best

Tom, like Andy I really like the bust! Paul Soldner used the technique of low fire salt fuming on a light body that really looks good on human forms. Here's a shot of a few of my pots.
