These are some of the little Kusamono pots I pulled out of the last load! Normally Bonsai pots are pretty neutral colors and shapes so the TREE is the center of attention, but with the accent plant - a small plant displayed along side a bonsai in a formal display - the pot can be a bit more radical. Often the plant has leaves that drape down over the sides of the pot somewhat, they flower, have brightly colored foliage, or some sort of attention drawing aspect like wispy seed heads on grasses. So the pots can have a lot more color and variations in shape. These are small, draped over a tennis ball, and a LOT of fun to make! I admit, the pink one is a bit more radical than I was actually going for, but its actually a nice little pot. The yellow is the same glaze I've used on a few bonsai pots, its bright but perfect for something like a maple that has BRIGHT fall foliage. I'll post some more later, they're just too cute. These are listed on my Etsy site.
Clay has always fascinated me, its many colors and textures, the shapes you can create using it, even the feel of it squishing in my hand. Even after years of playing in the mud I find myself exploring new ideas and I hope my work shows this.
