    Perfect Pots are going to meet three requirements.

    Structurally Sound, a well fired clay body.

    Frost Proof, or noted if not, I will run tests.

    Sitting Well, as to not sway, rock, or move when displayed.


    I managed to pull about ten of these at this quality out of this firing, I will begin with them, minus the ones spoken for.

    PM me offers. I am fully equipped with my new mobile device to communicate in a timely manner.
    Excellent Service is My Goal.



    When I hold this pot....
    I remember that I own these!
    I'm proud to own this.

    The only thing that would make me more proud is seeing it under someone else's planting. _DSC0946[1].JPG

    With a 3 1/2 in x 5/8in planting area, coming in right around 4in at the top, standing just one inch high table to top....

    Someone's Contest Mame Could get Dressed!

    A Rusty Brown line divides the Copper green patina color of the lip and sides.
    The Blue Specks in the rim are echoed in the feet.
    Greyish Purples Splashing out of rust brown specks make this pot fun to look at.
    While it's Satin Finish and small stature can allow a tree to remain the show.

    Thanks For Looking!

    Beauty! The xmas budget is keeping me from treating myself right now. But when I do get into the market for a Sorce Original from the Source, it would be helpful to have some kind of a "standard*" scale object in at least one picture for each pot.

    A lighter, a thumb, a bottle cap, a banana, a Nigerian 50 kobo coin (I can send you one, if your current supply is low), a fertilizer scoop, a pyrocone, a 120 sided die, a decapitated g.i. joe head, a cat's skull, a pizza roll, a mini disc, a Zip disk, a forever stamp, a never stamp, or a tramp stamp if you're really committed. Whatever you've got lying around, really.

    *as standard a a sorce standard can be.

    @Victorim and my U.K. and elsewhere peeps....

    Eventually, I want to have my chop dug up out of "elaborate gardens of copper wire" from all over earth in like a million years or so.

    When it becomes feasible to ship a crate to anywhere, I will.

    Now. I heard it's expensive to ship small lots, but I believe there is a middle ground between, people wanting pots, and me wanting you to have a them.

    Can't sell a crate without a few Wares holding dope trees at Noelanders you know what I mean!

    The doper the tree...the more I pay for shipping?

    Pack a pro with a suitcase?

    I keep trying to explain to the Sorceress that I am an artist.
    These things, with this passion, I can't ignore it anymore, it's what I am.

    Ignoring it, or trying to pretend I belong in some other "profession", or "career" is simply, me not owning up to what I am supposed to be doing, with every breath, to serve humans.

    People have an off switch when it comes to listening, so speech is never enough.

    There is something about a handmade pot, bonsai or otherwise, that gives a feeling to a human.....

    One of those feelings we all feel exactly the same but can not word what we feel the same because we are different, but the same!

    No matter what part of Earth you come from!

    So let's make it happen!

    The more outrageous it is now....
    The more sense it will make later!

    Sorce

    P.S.....next!

    This one can say stone, or sky, but remains a pot with its semi-distinguished lip edge.
    The Planting area is 4 1/4 in x 1 in.
    Just under 5in on the outside and 1 1/4 in table to top.

    With three feet and six possible fronts, picking a "front" will have options.
    I want my vessels to be versatile.
    Exciting anew, again, and again.

    The monster is ugly.
    Fully cursed to ensure the beauty of the tree that resides in this pot.

    Kicking it at these shows Bro!

    And these!

    A couple for the glaze lovers!

    I can't fully guarantee these frost proof until I wet and weigh em.
    Even if they pass a frost proof test, it will be just inside acceptable ranges, and with the thin walls, I DO NOT recommend these left outdoors in freezing weather.

    An oval at 3x 2-1/2 x 3/4 planting space.
    Thin walls, it stands about 1-1/4 in table to top.
    The rim is wow! _DSC0936.JPG

    _DSC0934.JPG
    _DSC0935.JPG

    And a Sorceround 3 x 3/4.
    Thin walled too and about 1in table to top.
    A pale green patina rim is the only thing holding together what is otherwise glaze chaos!

    _DSC0939.JPG
    _DSC0938.JPG

    A plant may ruin the conversation piecedness of these!

    Ha! These would make great decoy pots in the cabinet!
    Let visitors hold these to keep their hands off your antiques!

    These pots have great energy!
    I will seperate them, but they are stronger together.
