New (to me) PK Pots

Postby dansai » September 8th, 2017, 11:22 am

I recently did a trip to Sydney and dropped by Bonsai Art run by the Bennetts. Megummi's husband told me Megummi was selling off some of her personal collection of pots. I acquired some Tokoname pots and these 2 Pat Kennedy pots. They had beautiful glazes I have not seen on PK pots and one had a very unique shape. If you see this Pat, I'ld love a little history and some information on the design on the second one particularly.

The first one from 2 different angles

And the second. It looks to me like a Japaneses bowl with a place for chopsticks. Not sure how to plant something in it though.

Iron reds, bone ash and the like? Chun glaze over the top? Lovely glazes.

Thanks Dansai , I can't add to Gavin's take on the glazes...(he knows his stuff), but I can throw some light on the peculiar shaped pot....it's my take on a Japanese water bucket!!

Both are beautiful pots pat. Any idea how old they may be? Both look unused and in mint condition.

I guess around twenty years dansai....certainly before my Tree Change. Actually I do remember selling them to Megummi...it was a bit of a struggle

Clearly we're not married yet Pat, but if you vote the right way there's always a chance... That should put you off for life.
