This one is moulded from my oval Wasen design, altered to have the squared flange and without the lower rib, to give a clean curved wall profile. It is 415 x 305 x 85. The light blue glaze has darker blue highlights and breaks to a greeny beige colour.
This next one is based on my Tarraibune design, shortened in every direction to finish up at 395 x 270 x 76. The glaze is one I first tested in July last year but not used before on a pot. It works really well and I will use it again for sure. The colour would be good for any deciduous tree and also white to offwhite flowering species; perfect for a gardenia for example where the flowers start white and then age to offwhite/gold.
This last one is a commissioned repeat of a previous make; the Tenmasen in 'slate' glaze. It is Pot No 35 while I'm now into the 60s and has been waiting in bisque inventory for the right moment. This robust design/glaze combination is one that always gets attention. Dimensions are 380 x 275 x 89.
I'm very happy with the stability of this pot. Making a dimensionally sound high fired rectangular pot is probably one of the more challenging tricks in this pottery game. On this last firing I tried something new to get better temperature distribution in the kiln, which seems to have been beneficial, but that's another story for another day.
