Your thoughts please
« on: July 21, 2013, 05:46 PM »
Hello,

Here are a couple of photos of a new form that I have been working with.

A diamond shaped pot finished in one of my ash glazes.

Your thoughts please.

Cheers,
Paul

Slant style deciduous / broadleaf evergreen trees would look nice in it. 

Looks nice.  May look even better with narrower width feet.

How's a diamond shape any different than say... a square?

Beautiful pot.  I love the colors in the glaze!

Hello Wayne,

I appreciate the positive feedback.

In regards to your question, it's all about the proportions.

Here is a photo of the bottom of the pot.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Paul

I didn't mean to sound quite so sarcastic (hey, its a gift!).  I seriously did think it was much more square-shaped than the last picture reveals that it is.

I don't see many bonsai pots that are square, much less diamond shaped.  And I'll stand behind my earlier comment: I love that glaze!

It was a legitimate question. 

My description of "diamond shaped" was a bit vague.

I appreciate the positive feedback on the Glaze.  That is one of my ash based glazes that is called Patina green.

Here are a few more photos of this glaze for your viewing pleasure.

Regards,
Paul

Hello Dirk,

Yes, the last photo is an oval pot that measures 18" x 15" x 4".

Thanks for the positive feedback.

Cheers,

Love this coloring, and the pots..., I have a tree that would look great in the last one, but would need a bit larger. Possible?

Love the glaze too.  My wonder is positioning, I guess it would have to be slanted to compliment the diamond.

Any thoughts on the pot's finish?

It's a new glaze and I would appreciate your feedback.

Honestly?- the glaze doesn't do it for me.  Maybe if it was more brown based... Too pepto for me, but then again, I'm not a pink kinda girl.  I keep trying to figure out what plant would work in this color, maybe an azalea?

Looks very much like a dessert  :).  This species, Osteomeles subrotunda could look good.  Darker could be an improvement.
