Calligraphy on pottery

Two years ago, I made a collaboration with a German potter, Andreas Münz for a Bonsai Show in Berlin. It was a fun work and we´ve been having a good friendship since then. This year, we have decided to do another collaboration and I visited his workshop this weekend. 

He had been investigating the perfect glazeing. One of the difficulties we had the last time was the thickness of the glaze. If it´s too thick, the brush doesn´t run and destroy the strokes, which is the beauty of calligraphy. But then if it´s too thin, the glaze is just blown away by the fire or the melt away. This time, after several tests, Andreas had found the very good balance and the temperature for the firing.

 

 These are my works on Andreas´ pots. They look like Korean stype Kimch pots, don´t they? The firing will be soon and I can´t wait to see the result.
