As I alluded to in the other thread I enter a few plants in the Sacramento cactus and succulent show, below are some of my entries in pots I've created recently.

I think this would look better in an oval rather than the round it's in


Pot may be a little small but the shape was intentional


Everyone loved this pot


Another popular pot






Need a pot that is not so distracting




The only true bonsai of the bunch, Ipomoea arborescence.


The pot that started it all, my 1st creation


The vendor potters were very interested in how I made the crack pots


Another popular combination

Ketoi, I like every one of your pots but my favorite is the next to last one. The one with the round succulent. I think the texture of that pot is utterly fascinating. It reminds me of a hollow log that is slowly splitting apart. The pot actually feels like it has tension, as if it could split apart while you watched. It is fantastic.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Everyone likes that pot, and it was an experiment gone bad...I thought. Till I put the wash on it, was like a totally different container. Now I have orders to recreate it in larger dimensions.

I agree. It is also my favorite (though that is not to say that I don't like the others) and it looks very organic.

Thanks all for the encouragement!!

Boon,
This pottery endevor is addicting, you should see my electric bill! Met a potter at the show that will do gas firings for me, if I can fill the kiln he'll charge me a $80! Going to make some pots specificly for a reduction load, so I stopped by Clay People and purchased 200lbs of various clays.

Very cool pots! I was just wondering where you got a photo of my ex girlfriend? The second one looked familiar...
