This medium sized oval has a nice understated quality about it. In this photo the color is a bit greenish rather than yellow. I wanted to get some slight color variation by using a sporadic layering of white underglaze. This technique calls for more practice and experimentation to get what I want to achieve in the final result.

This rectangle shows texture and stain and wabi sabi feet. It was fun to make and I am currently drying several more similar to this one. Its a bit tricky to make the round wall into a true rectangular shape so I made some special boards to help with the form alteration. I got the idea from another bonsai potter's website photos a couple of years ago. He is the true American master bonsai potter. Thank you Ron!
