I want to share some pics of my first glazed pots. I'm aware that they are a bit wonky here and there but so am I. I hope they are "enjoyable", if not I hope some can at least appreciate the effort hahaha.
Did you glaze the insides too or just the lip? If so, I thought it was bad for the roots to glaze the inside all the way down. I like the shade of green on the first one.
I love them both and think you did a fantastic job!
I love the shapes and the colors.
You should see what mine looked like for my first try.....Nasty,Ugly...
Not bad for a first go a it No it's Not.
My take on glaze on the inside is that an unglazed pot lets the roots hold better, where the glaze is just too smooth. Funny thing is I had heard more than once that it was the pot breathed better unglazed, but jeez how much "breathability" would be added to the open top of the pot, plus the drainage holes. Bet Dale has a good answer for that ?
. . . and possibly some "anal-compulsive Japanophiles"(as Nick Lenz calls them) and their fragile sense of reality...or something like that.
