Marie Hewartson pot

Post by Grant Bowie » August 31st, 2014, 2:05 pm

Hi all,

At the recent AABC/BCI Convention at the Gold Coast was a stall by Marie Hewartson with her hand and wheel thrown pots.

I bought this one. At first glance it is similar to a PK pot but on a closer look it has different proportions and detail.

A friend of mine also bought a lovely green glazed pot.

I wish her well with her pots in the future.

Nice pot.
The patterns on the top pick make it look like brickwork :-)

8-) It's texture is like the burnt charcoal on a log. There would have to be a few natives that complement the pot. The pot has got me thinking about landscapes which is a good sign.
Patience is often a surprise.

I have already potted; surprise, surprise, a native into it.

This pot and tree will be part of a future thread so I will keep it under wraps for about 6 months.

Sorry for the tease.

Beautiful pots, another great aussie potter to add to the list :)

First one reminds me a lot of Tony Remmington's pots from the UK, second one not so much though, but still stunning all the same :tu:

Thanks for sharing grant :D

Very nice, and unique. I'd like to do a cement one but lost the post that showed them being made.

How lucky you are to have contacts that do bonsai pots. Wish I did.

I like the unusual. Rather than what they offer for sale in Bunnings.
