Nice pots Andy.
I like that drippy double-fire ( been there before for sure!) and still like that crackle.

Hi Dale

I spent a few days trying out some experimental stuff, more to come when fired, its good fun to push the boundaries and see what comes out of the kiln. I have been making some other Ceramics, non bonsai related for customers and have come up with some new glaze ideas. Will post as and when fired

Thanks for your kind comments

Hi Dale

Still trying to like the Lilac and Crackle, sort of growing on me Rolling Eyes sort of...

Hi Klaudia

I am with you on the Tourquoise glaze, I really love it. I have been playing around with some new glazes lately and have just finalised a Barium based glaze that comes out a treat. Hopefully I will have a large batch mixed ready for my next firing with a few pots sporting this new glaze. Funny how us potters get excited over a new glaze coming out how you want it too Very Happy

Regards to you both

Andy

Yes Andy, very nice!

The two blue pots have the same glaze? Just wondering if it is rather temp. sensitive, or if you changed up the oxide amount for a different blue in the second pot.

At any rate, I likes 'em all! Cool

Hi Rob

Same glaze, same amount of oxide, even same shelf in the gas kiln. They are pretty much the same in the flesh Rob, possibly the poor quality of my photos Wink

Dale

The big bats, yeah going ok at the moment thanks. Hope to have some new biggies fired soon but I am a little bogged down in the commission department so not alot of time to play and do my own thing. I need to give up the day job Rolling Eyes I wish Rolling Eyes
The silver leaves. I am in a mixed mind of whether they are too in your face or too cheesy. Time will tell if they sell. Got to push the retail limits Dale Wink

Robert

Thanks mate. Good to hear from you hope your potting is going well

Petite Arbe

Good to hear from you, hope you and the family are well?

Peter


Hopefully I will have some more for Burrs. Not long now my friend. Send me the flight details and times when you have them and I can arrange transport.

Rob

Thanks for the kind comments. Not too sure if the Leaf Pots are free of the cheese in my eyes just yet. I got a few things to change on them before I am totally happy. Should have some biggies in the next few weeks, time being well and all that. Hope that gas kiln of yours is going well? You should have had it filled again by now, I wanna see the first batch from the first glaze firing thumbs up

Regards to you all

Andy,
As far as the leaves go, I enjoy watching your artistic process developing. I am sure you understand this, but just remember, it is a process, and the fact that you are experimenting will allow you to grow.

Throwing big? I am currently making two large commissioned ovals (25+") each, and I made bats using plexiglass. They are upwards of 24 and 26 inches across, and 1/4 inch thick clear disks. They were given to me by another vendor (nurseryman) from the BSF show this past Spring. All I had to do was drill holes! Pretty cool huh? Cool

The kiln project is ongoing. I am waiting for the arrival of a gas gauge that will be retrofitted to my gas line going into the kiln. Another potter whom I respect very much gave me some pointers, and I am anxious to use them in the next glaze firing. It was a bit hard to find just the right gauge to use, (water colum 15 Inch), but it will help tremendously. The kiln is tricky to adjust pressure going in, which is cruicial when firing long and slow for big pieces.....

Don't worry, I will share it on my blog soon.....

Take care,
Rob
