Crabapple.

I repotted my small crabapple in a new pot this year. It is a lotus-shaped pot that was fired in a anagama kiln for four days. It is unglazed and you can see how it was exposed to the fire constantly for four days. The flame was "flowing" around it and left orange/ golden flashings on certain areas. I think the pot complements the tree well even if the tree needs some more refinement and ramification before it goes to its first exhibition =)

Mini pots.

Here are some tiny wheelthrown pots that came out of my kiln last week. The smallest pot is 3 cm wide and 2 cm high. They will work well as a home for tiny bonsai or accentplants.

Woodfiring.

I recently made the fourth firing in my woodfired kiln. The firing went pretty well but I am not super happy with the result. Some unglazed pieces didn´t came out as i expected so they will be refired next time.

I finished the firing at a high temperature with a nice, big bed of ember in the firebox. In doing so I got a slow cooling which is good for the flamemarkings (hi- iro).

For the next firing I will keep stoking for a couple of extra hours at top temperature to get some more ash build up.
