Female accent mud figures bonsai penjing

Post  giangus on Wed Mar 14, 2012 9:47 pm

Sharing you some pictures of my recent female accent unglazed figurines.

The tea ceremony figurines bonsai penjing
















I used the white sandstone for the body part, the orange Treigny's sandstone for the kimono and black sandstone for the details. The firing temperature is 1280°C.

I like the Seza positioning...of all the pictures...Seza is very meditative in itself.

Giang, nice figurines, I always thought that display figurines are sexist! You are correcting it, Great!

I'm curios, why do you fire it so High 1280 degrees? Isnt it glazing temperature?

Thank you Kakejiku and André,
Bonsai pots are usually fired at 1280°C or higher temperature for the frost resistant. Ordinary horticulture clay pots are fired at ~900°C. After a few seasons with the winter negative temperature, they get broken easily compared to high temperature bonsai pots.

Some maple kokedama from my garden.

Hi,
For the kokedama base, I use 1/2 compost, 1/ 4 garden soil with clay and 1/4 charcoal reduced into small pieces for the trees. Green moss grows on acidic humid surfaces. To have an acidic solution, I simply used beer and vinegar. Then I blended green moss with beer (not Foster Very Happy ) and vinegar, with a kitchen blender to have green smootie of moss. Filnally I applied this moss smootie on the surface of the kokedama for the moss to grow. You can also used natural yogurt and put it on the sphere of the kokedama with a brush, then, you get some pieces of fresh moss from the garden to let them grow on the kokedama ball. This technique is quicker than the moss smootie, when you have some kokedama.

Green moss like humidity and heat, with a small greenhouse or a fresh place without direct sun, with regular watering, the green moss will colonize entirely the kokedama naturally in a few weeks.

Those kokedama from the pictures, I made them last month, the moss is growing slowly with the springtime here.
When the moss ss well developed, we maintain its freshness when we water the trees.
Regards,
giang

Thank you kindly for your Advice Giang. This is something i wish to start next spring. You have quite an impressive collection. LOL @ the fosters remark, i have never actually seen it for sale, i think we export it to the rest of the world and dont retain any for our selves.
