Pots from Sweden.

Post  tomas g on Wed Jan 19, 2011 9:30 pm

I am a hobby potter from Sweden, and I have been making pots for about 2- 3 years. I don´t have my own studio or kiln... But I would love to have it!

I am working about one or two evenings per week in a ceramic studio nearby, so I don´t really get the continuity that I want (and need) in my work.

I have been following you guys here on the forum for a while, and I am getting really inspired by you all. So I think i will show you some of my pots ( if I can figure out how to post images scratch ). And I hope to get some feedback and critique, so I can develop as a "potter".

Very nicely made slab-built pot. Nice color and shapes. Feet are possiby just a bit too big ( IMO) but very nicely made.
Good work!! ThumbsUp

@ RHamers: Thanks for the image info. I´ll try some more images and hope I get the hang of it.

@ Dale: Thanks. I really like that glaze. It´s a new one I haven´t used so much before.

Peter, RHamers helped me to post the first picture, and all the pots are mine. Just a small missunderstanding, I think. Anyway, Your compliment means a lot to me... Thank you very much!

Thanks Dale. I have been experimenting with cloudfeet lately, and I really like it, even if it is more timeconsuming.

Good pots. Like Dale I like the rectangle with cloud feet the best. I, like you have been working on cloud feet also, very very time consuming Sad

Thanks for showing your work

My first porcelain pots...


Wheelthrown 11 cm wide. Transparent glaze stained with copperoxide




Slabbuilt pot, 15 cm wide. I didn´t have any support underneath the pot in the firing, so it was "sagging" a bit. I learned that porcelain is really sensative in the firing process




Detail.

Hello Tomas
Welcome in the international melting-pot of bonsai-pottery cheers

These are very nice pots! One day I will try some porcelain myself!

For the problem with sagging...here is a post I did some time ago.

Scion and Vic, thank you so much for the compliments!

Alex, it would be an honour for me if one of my pots would make all the way to the Phillipines!
