Craftsman made Bonsai Pots -Update


I took the pots the new selection of pots along to our local club Taunton and Somerset Bonsai Club to give members a first look through and it  seems it is a worthwhile project, encouraging Somerset Potter Anne Whittlesey to turn her hand to bonsai.Quite a few have gone but I have listed the ones I have left and am looking forward to her next firing.

For the progress of this project follow through my postings via the Bonsai Pots tag.

The potter did do a few unglazed ones but they went straight away I have asked her to do some more.See belowlaerge-unglazed

This is not intended to be a great commercial pot business if I can just get some pots for our club members to buy. Get a few pots for myself out of it over a period of time and encourage a local craftworker  to explore a new niche market as an artist myself I will be happy.Please  appreciate that after all Anne’s hours as a trained professional potter, materials, rent, kiln and power costs she will almost certainly earn less than the minimum working wage per hour.
