I too thought an azalea might do ok in that pot, but it'd have to be one that wasn't shown in-flower.  ...And darker would make it easier to find a tree this one would complement.

I Love the "patina green!" But I'm still deciding on the other... It would certainly have to be the right tree.

Do you do any sort of Patina White, or Patina Cream? Ans do you sell your pots?

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?

Thanks for the feedback Judy.

I have been testing some new base glaze formulas and one of the tests produced this pastel pink color.  I was very surprised to see this result when I open the kiln the first time.  Actually, I was expecting a green glaze.  Pink is a difficult color to produce in a high temperature firing.

I remixed and retested and the results were the same, so I decided to try it on this small pot.

You never know, it might come in handy one day.

Paul

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

I appreciate you taking the time to comment Owen.

My first thoughts were that it would make a nice color for a kusamono pot.

Any thoughts along that lines?

Cheers,
Paul

Lots of trees could work, first flash to my mind was a red chojubai flowering quince. Any of the crab apples, especially in fruit. if it were a shallow pot, one of the red or brightly colored in autumn japanese maples would work. Reds, purples and yellows would stand out against this glaze. It would also pick up and accent bluish tints to foliage. So a glaucus leaved tree, could be a stand out. Big Blue-Stem grass, and little Blue-stem would look good against this glaze. I like it.

A bit bright for the subtle trees, but perfect for the more gaudy.

Thanks Leo, I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

You have some very good ideas on how to pair up this glaze with a suitable tree.

I have tested many cone 10, crackle glazes and this one is the best I have seen.

Im in the tile/decorating business. Grey is projected to be the number one color this year.

Maybe a larger market for that glaze than just here Wink

Im close to getting a kiln myself.....
