And the Lime coloured pot (I think you called it green with Gold coming thru...)
Hi CoRedeMptioN,
I really like the green pot, its a really nice color. My problem is deciding to sell the pots and not just buying them myself lol. The rough finish has been really popular.

I really reckon the blue/brown glaze jobs are interesting though and could look spectacular with the right tree... (I think a native for sure, possibly a eucalypt?). Some good size options in the mix too which is handy. It's a great range :tu:
Hi Ryceman.
Thanks for the comments. The blue/brown glaze was what caughty eye when I first saw her work. I really like the blue as well. She has done really well with her sizes so far. Just have to adjust the feet height a little and there spot on. She's producing really nice pots. I can see my pot collection growing lol.

Now, the million dollar question:-
Does she do Mamè pots?

I love these pots! Here in Tasmania the range of pots especially handmade ones is somewhat limited. You are so lucky to have her making them for you.

And the answer is...................yes. When I picked these up she had some very small pots (only 2 or 3 centimetres across on the shelf drying. Will be interesting to see them finished.

Glad you like them Ashana. Maybe you could try going to Salamanca Market and see if there are any potters there with nice glazes and ask if they could make pots for you. That's how I got into this lady and I'm so glad glad it did. If you find someone who can make pots for you then have a look at this thread from Joann viewtopic.php?f=45&t=19600
It gives an idea of what to look for and questions to ask to make sure it's the right clay, glaze, firing etc.
Once we get the pots right and she's 100% happy with the quality we will be selling these pots too.
