Peter Krebs' Pot

Post  jgeanangel on Sun Aug 29, 2010 11:46 pm

I recently acquired a pot made by Mr. Kreb.

As it appears is his custom he added a haiku on the bottom....of course it is in German:)

and a closer look...


After a little research I believe that Haiku might translate to this:

On the mandarin duck's wings
a dust of snow
such stillness!

any thoughts?
John

I have had this pot in my hands when I was at Peter's place. It is a very beautiful pot.
What are your plans with it? Do you have something you wish to plant in it?

Regards,
Hans

Beautiful Pot. Interesting to see what you plant in it, a Forest, Group Planting springs immediately to mind for me

Thanks for showing

Almost correct translation, on a duck's wings, the tender snow is accumulating, oh such silence.
I am also the proud owner of a Peter Krebs pot with haiku Wink

Kind regards
Peter (not the Krebs though)

Hi John,
the pot has made a long journey, 14 years. Very Happy
I like this pot very much, because it is difficult to make this pot.
This pot is for a "Ikadabuki".

Hi Hans,
thanks for the compliment.
I still like to remember your visit.

Hi Andy,
I am also curious.

Hi Peter,
thanks for the translation and the compliment.

Best regards
Peter

Thanks for all the replies. I also very much appreciate the translation. I found my translation based on the original haiku...A friend had given me the gist of the German meaning and from that I was able to find the original and an English translation. There is even a video on youtube which uses this haiku.

Mr. Krebs...thank you for your reply. You have given me something new to translate:) "Ikadabuki" A good friend, Randy Clark of the Bonsai Learning Center in Charlotte, NC, purchased this pot from you in 1997. Upon bringing it home another friend purchased this particular one. He never used it other than to just sit on shelf. So, I was able to convince him to engage in a trade:) I would like to create a tray landscape for this container. I have been developing and collecting material now for a while...perhaps this Fall, or maybe next Spring, I will find the time to put it together. I also now realize that I made a mistake with your last name and I apologize. (I have now corrected the mistake)

Thanks all,
John

Hi John,
Yes, I remember Randy had bought this pot with me in Germany.
I'm very curious what looks like when you have finished your work.
The error in my name is not a problem, names are sound and smoke.

regards
Peter
