Shohin pot artistry
« on: July 17, 2010, 08:03 PM »
Here is the pot I mentioned that had a flaw in the bottom - a crack opening about 3/4" long.  The artist hadd drawn a dragon on the inside along the crack.  On one bottom opening he extended the tail and on the other, the flame from his mouth!  Very cool.  The glaze is reminiscent of tofukugi.  I do not know the maker - anyone? Michael?

John, you can find Tani Ranzan's blog here:

http://s.ameblo.jp/6raku-ranzan/page-1.html

It has some interesting pictures of his own trees, kusamono, and suiseki in his own pots, also some pics of him at work painting pots, and some finished pots.
