Thank you Keith. I think I need to get the plaster out and make a few more press molds this summer. Cool

The pots are looking good mate. Especially love the drum pot Very Happy very very nice

All the best

Thanks Andy. I like making drum pots and figuring out different ways to embellish them. One of the things that I love the most about this art is the chance to develop variations on a theme. Quite fun and challenging all the same. I see it in your pieces too.

Its what keeps things fresh Cool

very nice your new pots, such pots are asked to bonsai lovers, and are also often used. Laughing

Thank you for the complement Peter. I consider myself lucky to serve the tastes of the seasoned bonsai artist and novice alike. Smile

Nice pots as always, I particularly like the rim on that last pot Very Happy
Thanks Robert.

It great to see a lot of pots being show these days. I like the shino pot as well but I have a suggestion with glazing that is really a matter of opinion only. I usually try to apply the glaze down a small amount on the inside so that after potted up what is showing from the inside matches what is on the outside. I have noticed on some pots that I have used over the years that if I do not glaze down a little on the inside it can be distracting once potted. I agree; the next time I am glazing I will think of that.

Well either way great work, I hope to see some in person one of these days, hopefully some time you make your way up here to the Carolinas or I make it down south. Believe me, the next trip to the Carolinas will include a trip your way. I would love to see that kiln in person, and some of your wonderful RAKU pieces!

And I do not know about your schedule but tomorrow is the last day of school here and then I hope to have some more studio time this summer break. Amen to that brother!!!!
Keep it up
Rob

Your riveted drum pot is spectacular! I really like the way you cut the clay to show the grain. The horizontal scratches are a nice element. I also like the way your rivets are really close to one another. thumbs up

Thanks Preston!

You know, I wasn't really sure about this one when I was making it. In fact I almost scrapped it altogether!
Shocked Well, as you can see it ended up with much more than I had intended. As far as the texture goes, I agree that it does add something earthy to this type of pot. I can only fire in oxidation right now, so I have to beef up the character somehow.
It is always a challenge, competing with the dark reduced look that some of us can do (and quite well I must say!!), so I REALLY do appreciate that. Especially from you, who is quite familiar with the rugged look of high wood fire.

Thanks again,
Rob A.

Hey Rob,
It was good seeing you again at the CFBC picnic this weekend. I really like your scalloped drum. This picture does not do it justice. It really has strength and character in person. I think you sold that one to Steve on Sunday, didn't you?

If you get a change to repeat that wonderful cream/frog glaze you used on that pot Mike Rogers and I tussled over (LOL) please give me a heads up. I really fell in love with that little pot.

Take care,
Ed

No problem Ed. I will email you when I make more octagonal rectangles. If you want to you can subscribe to my website RSS and you can the latest updates (newest pots) too. I always photograph my latest pieces on the 'CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE' column.

Take care,
Ed

Just unloaded my kiln and here are a few more.

This is a devilish looking accent, measuring about 3 inches across.

Hi Rob,

again very nice pots.
But please show a photo of times where the feet of the pot are in a better position.
I think there are clouds feet?.

Hi Rob,
thanks for the photos.
Now I can see it exactly, the feet are no clouds feet, but your own creations.
The feet fit well under the pot, and the new pots are looking very nice.

Best regards

Thanks Robert for your support!

I hope your summer has been productive as well. I have been busy putting electric out to my kiln shed. Lately I have been losing studio time due to the fact I don't want to be working around an operating kiln (fumes, heat, etc.). Of course I don't suppose you have that problem 'wood' you! Razz

Sorry I couldn't resist that one. Rolling Eyes

Well, I look forward to seeing some of your stuff here again soon.

Rob

PS Did you know that Simon Levin is putting together a woodfire kilns world map? Check it out at woodfire.com.

Here is a funky primitive built from slabs:


This riveted oval looks off in the photo, but it is really much better in person. Took quite a while to put in those rivets!



This is a large oval with a sage satin glaze sprayed on.

I talked kilns with Simon in March. He didn't mention it then. It must be a pretty new thing.
BTW, I like the 'devilish' pot alot.

I already sent Simon an email with details of the kilns out here. It looks like a great resource.

Cool Preston. I may not know a lot about woodburning kilns, but I do know you guys have some KILLER KILNAGE!

Here is a pot Robert Kempinski picked up from me this Saturday. I had a great time visiting the Brevard Bunch! They are a very fun talented club!
