something new

Post  muenz on Tue Apr 28, 2009 12:18 pm

Hi,

you haven´t heard from me for a while.
We moved and I didn´t have a studio, but now I started working on some new pots.
Since this is a great forum for bonsai pots and potters, I wanted to show you some of them.
These are small ones, about 15 to 20 cm diameter.

I really like how your glazes work with the forms. The brown glaze breaks nicely.

Nice pots, well thrown and good glazes. I like many but particularly the dark one that seems to have a nice touch of redish orange in spots.
Thanks for posting

That´s easy: get yourself a pottery wheel and start throwing. Very Happy
With some practice you will be able to make your own ricebowls - or bonsaipots.

A nice collection to share with us.

Are you glad to have your own studio again? I know what it feels like to have to do without one for a while.

Could you give us some more info about your cone and firing atmosphere?

PS Just me, but I am never bored looking at other peoples pottery! Thanks for sharing. Cool

Hi Rob,

yes I am really glad to have my little studio. The pottery wheel was a very good investment. I have an electric kiln, so I fire in oxidation atmosphere to cone 6 - 7.
I mix my own clay from a standard german white body and an ironrich red clay. It is very time consuming, because I do it all by hand.
For glazes I mix raw materials in a small ball mill. And I use software for calculating glaze recipes. That´s my setup.
Tomorrow I will unload the kiln. I hope there will be more pots to show to you.

Hi Muenz

Great pots Very Happy

Do you have any tying in holes in the pot for wire?

From a Bonsai point of view you may want to put some tying in holes in the bottom of the pot so as to be able to anchor the Bonsai in the pot with wire as you first few pictures do not show any.

Thanks for showing

Regards

Andy

Hi Andy,

these pots are all small (max 20 cm). Thats why I didn´t put in any tying in holes. When I plant small bonsai in pots like this I fix the wire through the drainage hole. But you are right. More holes make it easier to fix the tree. I will take that into account next time.

Regards
Andreas
