New Spring Pots

Post  Robert Wallace on Fri Apr 17, 2009 5:08 am

Here are some new pots I unloaded from the Kiln yesterday. Any thoughts or critique is more than welcome. sunny
The first two are just ones stuck in the chimney, and then a rivet pot and a faceted one.

This first pot is an experiment but the photo does not really show it very well. Its is somewhat of an abstract planter similar to a hallow tree trunk but not ment to be a literal model of one. Then some crescent pots, the first one is fairly large about 13" wide.

Some other versions of slab/crescent forms. The last two shots are the same pot just a few different view to try and better show the shape. Well feel free to tell me what you like and dont like and why? I am always curious to see what people tend towards.

Robert,

Great pieces; nice development!

Your woodfiring is really coming along nicely. I am envious you see! Cool

I dig your blue glaze, perhaps I could PM you for the recipe?

As a non-potter, it is always interesting to see what other potters have to say about someone's pots. My likes and dislikes are only subjective. I like all of your pots, but my favorite is the unglazed oval, the natural variations and simplicity of the piece appeal to me. The blue glaze on the rectangle pot also speaks to me. Don't ask me why. The bottle is impressive. Thanks for showing, I like looking.

I agree with Carolee, that blue glaze is dynamite. It's not too blue and the way its applied is nice as well. The crusty slab looks volcanic. I'm not too stoked with the indentations on the pot with the nice blue soda effects. It might be that the fire fluxed the wrong spot on that pot for those impressions to work. Or it might be that the feet sort of cause dissonance with the impressions. What are your thoughts about your pot, Rob?

Thanks for all the good feedback, it looks like the blue glaze(s) was a hit. It is interesting how different one glaze can come out, on some other pots it went almost completely green. Posted below is an oval slab form I made for a friends clump azalea using the same blue as the rectangles and the round one with the vertical lines in it. It went almost completely green aside from a little puddle of blue on the rim. The other one is my cone 6 blue that goes pretty funky in cone 10 soda with a lot of variety. I am not as happy with it as the others but varitey is nice. Preston I am glad to here your thoughts I miss not having you around at the kiln but enjoy your opinions. On the pots with the vertical lines I made 4 feet as opposed to my usual 3 to line up with the marks I made and the photographed 4 or the 8 typical fronts (2 feet evenly spaced or one foot in front-- a view I do not tend to use much) I am peased with the effects on the 1st view a lot, the second view as well. The third view is Ok and may work with a dramatic tree but the fouth view looks like the pot is flicking you off and I am not happy with how it lined up. I sold that pot today and will be interested to find out what view side the artist tends to use. David's critique was that he liked the pot but thought the granite chunks were a bit much. I am not sure... but am podering that for the next round.

Well any other thoughts or opinions are welcome, good or bad I am well aware that this like any art form is subjective but enjoy hering what people tend to like or dislike.
Thanks all
Robert

Some fall pots

Post  Robert Wallace on Tue Oct 06, 2009 2:40 am

It has been a while since I posted any pots here. I have not made as many bonsai pots this summer as I would have liked and then did not get time to photograph the ones I did make. I did not want to let all these go without getting some shots this time and I would like to get some feedback on this batch. All of these came out of my electric kiln fired about cone 8 (cone 6 claybody) so they are very vitrified.
Any feedback is welcome.

It may be old but I likes it! Laughing

Great to see your pieces here again Robert. The rectangular piece is very interesting too. I love making slab built pieces, but they are so time consuming Rolling Eyes

Beautiful pots. Thanks for sharing!

Peter,
Thank you for your kind words.

Rob,
Thanks, I glad you like the rope technique.

Nice Robert,
My preference is for the stretched technique but that last ash pot is great!
