Hi Tony

The pots are looking good especially the cracked and fissured ones. I heard of this technique about a year ago from a good USA Ceramics website who give alot of techniques and tips that can be employed in the Bonsai pot world, but I have only just got around to trying out this technique. Always the same story so many ideas to try out and so little time to do them in Crying or Very sad

Thanks for sharing your work

Regards

Hi kitoi
No they are fired in an electric kiln. I just took some time working the surface with different oxides. Glad you like them I tried another one where I part threw the pot and then gave it a wash with black slip before throwing. I have posted a picture of it it is quite interesting, but it would look better with a white clay body behind the black slip.
All the best Tony

Tony,
I agree or maybe if the black was more black instead of a grayish tone, nice shape though. What cone/temp do you fire at?

Have a load of crackpots to fired on Friday.

Hi
In real life it is more black the photo flash has bleached the colour out a bit. I fire to 1235c it could go higher but most of my glazes are best to that temp.

Tony,
I like what you have done with the cracked surface technique. Very interesting!

That red is one of my favorite glazes. Was this a high or midfire version? Slow cooled too I bet...
Cool

Hi Rob
The red is my favourite glaze it's one of those that you can always rely on, as long as you apply it thick enough. If you apply it to thin it goes black. You can fast fire it and fast cool it, it doesn’t mind. I fire to 1235c so fairly high. As for the crack pots still work in progress, but pleased with the results so far.

Hi Tony,

Your pots are very expressive, even your glazes look very good. Laughing

Best regards
