Hello Robert,

a potter is a lonely wolf.
Experiments are daily bread, defeats and success are like brother and sister.

Your new pots succeeded very well, the first pot are my favorite.

regards

It has been a while since I posted some new pots, who knew that kids would take up so much time Very Happy Either way here are a few things I have made this spring. The first three are a new glaze I am working with in my wood kiln, a Fake Ash Alberta Slip. I am going to play with this a bit more but I like the variation between yellow and blue.

Here are a few our of my electric kiln, a new cresent, and a semi cascade with a little carving-- one for a tree I have been growing. And lastly a large slab built rectangle about 20" wide, I want to get my corners just a bit better but I have a nice slab roller now and hope to use it more this summer Razz .

Several of my new pots were fired in friends kilns and this one was In Prestons new wood soda kiln--hopefully he will have time to get back on the forum soon, but it is a regular oval with an iron spray. The corner got some great soda, if it was an inch over the front face would have had a great show but that is the way it goes jocolor

About 1/2 my work these days are non-bonsai pots but somehow bonsai seem to find there way in to much of what I am doing. This is the first in a series of wall platters I am working on using bonsai imagery but the thrown platter as the canvas. Thanks for looking Smile

I love that plate. I seem to have those on the walls all over my house from several potters. Bonsai potter Bob Galick in Ohio has done some beauties and the wife of potter Richard Robinson ( Rockport pottery) decorates some of his plates with beautiful koi.
The carved cascade is very similar to one I bought from you at the Asheville gift shop last October.

All these pots were so very interesting. Like another's comments..as a non-potter I can only offer 'one man's opinion' so here goes..I fell in love with all the streached pots shown (so much) and a very close second were the rectangular ones....my first ever re-pot should be in another 10 months or so....I really do see the compliment an attractive and unique pot adds..thx for sharing..so nice really all of them. Also liked the bottle as well!

I like the Fake Ash Alberta Slip Pots very much. The variation between yellow and blue is just wonderful.

Thanks for the comments I appreciate it. Andy I was thinking after the 20th hour of firing how envious I was of your gas kiln Wink but I do enjoy the pots that came out. I appreciate your thread "even bonsai potters like doing something different" along that line here is another one of my platters that came out pretty nice. It is just under 20" across.

BTW, may I ask, what glaze did you use on this one? I love the look of it with the wood fired patina...

I hope I'm not overstepping, but I did help glaze it.pirat It has a crackle shino splashed on then lightly sprayed with:
cobalt and frit
rutile and frit
and Red Iron Oxide
I'm not sure the ratio of oxide to frit matters that much. Equal parts is a good place to start.
It's all about application. Not too little and not too much. I learned the process when I lived in Arizona. It works best in salt or soda.
I believe I might post an image of my new Wallace platter here when I take a pic. He really has something going here.

Craig, I appreciate you looking. Rob I am happy with the result and they make the hours worth it. It certantly helps when they day starts to get long and you have friends there to help. This past firing had Preston and his wife (also an talented potter) there to the very end. Preston, good explanation of technique and I would love to see a photo of the platter you got, I photo'ed the rest and they are already gone. I only have 2 left Sad but I guess that is the purpose in making them.
Thanks for looking, any comments (likes- and dislikes) are welcome.
