Thank all of you for plaudit, my ego like it...I am kidding, I really appreciated that my works are remarkable for you. Thanks.

Truth is that in Czech Republic we have surprising amount of tearooms and it help me to develop my tea ware. It is because in pottery you need not only inspirations, information, and artistic feelings but also a lot of practice. And I am conscious that there is a lot of things I can work on. So I have to say also thank you to all people who suport me on my journey.
Here is a teapot just after finishing...

How was the crackling added to the surface? Looks like it is "stretch marks?"

I wonder what it will look like out of the fire. :?:

Welcome to TeaChat. SOme nice looking forms there.

Looks like you are using sodium silicate (waterglass) on the surface to get the cracking when you stretch.....and an enhansed "flashing" effect on the fired unglazed clay in addition to the woodfire. Is that the case?

best,

I just purchased a houhin & cup set created by Petr (my local teashop, Dobra Tea, has a nice collection of his works) and I love it. Great work Petr; I hope to obtain more of your teaware soon!

Thank all of you for kind words.

John, you are right. I use wateglass for this decoration. I apply thin coat of waterglass on basic cone of clay, than I left it for several minutes and than working only from inside by one hand I make a shape of the pot.


Spittingouteeth: Which one of Dobra tea is your local? Is it Madison or Burlington? Thank you for support and enjoy your pot. Please, Let me know by a time how it works.
