Post 106 New 'Lava' rock pot

A while ago I posted a shot of Pot 52 with a highly textured surface reminicient of extruded lava. I was surprised at the response to it, no doubt by the many keen growers of australian natives looking for a pot to match some of the raw and textured bark of our trees.

I've been testing other ways to get texture into pots and have only just come back to the 'lava' wall with Pot 80. Here it is just made and still very wet. It's a round semi cascade pot about 300mm diameter.

And here's a closeup. Glaze will be a flat red brown, a little darker than Pot 52, in a few weeks time.
