Wow, nice pots Andy. Very Happy

You know, these colors (stains) are giving a rather pale contribution of color. I think the yellow and blue especially would work VERY well to a bonsai. They look like they are from a Japanese palatte. Do you understand what I mean? The hue is more cool than warm.

They are all very lovely indeed!

I wanted a pale touch of colour, nothing too strong and over powering. I think that the pink and green can work in some situations where as I do agree that the pale blue and yellow are perhaps a little more useful than the said two. All said and done I will be using all of them in my Bonsai pot colour palette, perhaps this is my "Pastel" moment Wink Thanks for your support and kind comments

Peter E

I will drop you an email today, think I still have your address. Alternatively drop me an email then I can get back to you that way. Thanks for your kind comments

Peter

Thank you for the support sir

Will

Cheers mate, I might get there one day, I keep trying. Or should that be I am too trying Wink

Regards to all and thanks for your support

Hello Andy,

Nice selection of glazes you have there mate. I like them all and think they will make a great addition to your glaze portfolio.

Were these developed from that matt crackle glaze recipe you shared in another post? I never could get that one to work for me.

I noticed that the crackle pattern is different on the second and the third pots. Was this intentional?

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,
Paul

Thanks for your kind comments.

Thanks for your support. The base glaze for this crackle is different from the matt crackle I posted on here. When the stains were added to the Matt crackle base I lost the crackle so I went back to the drawing board. This glaze is more glossy than the matt one, although the pictures don't really show it. Good for shohin but too " In your face" for a big pot I think. Now just got to get the Matt crackle right and I will be happy.

Thanks for your kind comments

I thought that might be the case.

Good job Andy, that would explain the different crackle patterns on the 2nd and 3rd pots.

I experienced the same problem when I tried to add colorants to the base crackle glaze that I posted. As soon as I added anything to the base mix the crackle went away.

Good luck with tweaking that matt crackle recipe.

Cheers,
Paul

All the glazes are the same base recipe with different stain in different quantities. The crackle in the glaze pretty much does what it likes due to the fact that it shrinks in the firing quicker that the clay body, hence the cracks Very Happy

Hi Dale

Yes I was pleased with the results and so was Will. Yes, thats the joy of making two for the customer as you can have the other go into stock. In fact making Will's pot lead me on to making some other in this vein, but have have yet to be final fired. Hopefully next week so I have a wider selection for the BoBB show in April

Thanks for you kind comments

End of an Era...

Post  Stone Monkey on Fri Mar 25, 2011 10:25 pm



A very very sad day for me. The old original Stone Monkey gas kiln has had her very last firing in my care. When I open the kiln on Sunday it will be a special day for me. I said a few prays to the kiln gods hoping that all will be well. I shall post the results soon Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Due to the land owner selling up and me having nowhere to move her to I have had to sell her. The new owner will be collecting next week and when she is cold on Sunday I will have to dismantle her to the basic components. Unless I get a get a new gas kiln there will be many glazes and finishes I will be no longer able to achieve. It looks like I will be going electric, but I suppose we all have our cross to bear. It also means that I will be out of action for a while, well from a firing point of view anyway. All the Bonsai pots will be at BoBB and there will be a few "In Your Face" pots but hey I would not have it any other way. Hope fully I won't be down too long and I will post the results from the final firing soon.

Regards

Andy
