I glazed the insides, didn't have time to remove the glaze there. Glaze on the inside is only bad for the professional potters bank account and possibly some "anal-compulsive Japanophiles"(as Nick Lenz calls them) and their fragile sense of reality...or something like that.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.
Thanks Irene! I think I'll use them as accent pots or for candy hahaha. They're really small. I might put a native blueberry or something in the green one...we'll see...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...
Thanks Bill! Yeah, I guess an unglazed pot would let the roots hold better, but I wire my trees to the pot until they've settled so in my case that's a non issue. I'm not sure I even understand the whole breathing-thing. I mean, is that a good thing? I understand that the roots needs oxygen, but if that's a problem I would have my soil do that job and not the pot. If someone would want the pot to breathe I would suggest a pond basketNot 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 ?
I love it! LOL. But not as much as I love your pots! The blue one especially is quite nice.. . . and possibly some "anal-compulsive Japanophiles"(as Nick Lenz calls them) and their fragile sense of reality...or something like that.
