It is with great sorrow and a very heavy heart that we must announce the passing of Doug Mudd on Wednesday 15th December 2021.
Doug was one of Europe's finest and most respected makers of bonsai display furniture and was the founding member of the EBPC furniture section. A much loved member of the bonsai community and a devoted member of Wirral Bonsai Society. Doug was a true gentleman and the nicest person you could hope to meet. He was a mentor to up and coming table makers, and thoroughly enjoyed helping them advance.
Doug only managed to create a few tables for the EBPC before he tragically became ill. The table he was working on at the time, and could not finish is now the most treasured piece in the EBPC collection and will be used in pot displays for years to come in honour of this incredibly talented and inspirational man. The table is pictured below with an antique Chinese pot.
Doug recently submitted a display to Expo Bonsai UK 2022, which has been accepted and will be displayed.
His tables will also be enjoyed for decades to come at leading bonsai exhibitions.
Doug will be remembered and greatly missed by many and our deepest condolences go out to Doug's wife Christine and family and friends.
Rest in peace my friend!
Pictured above is the plaque recording and celebrating all of the stamps and signatures used by Andrew Pearson of Stone Monkey Ceramics throughout his career. Currently the only such plaque in existence, Andrew kindly produced this for the EBPC to be used for pot displays and it can be seen above in the company of plaques by Japanese greats - Gyouzan, Bigei, Reiho, and Kakuzan.
Revered across the bonsai world, Stone Monkey Ceramics comprehends and is conscious of the the tree-pot marriage and produces excellent designs, in a variety of forms and finishes that suit trees impeccably. As the first Westener to have been invited to participate in the world's leading bonsai exhibition and small pot contest, 'The Gafu-ten', (which he won first place in the unglazed section!!) we thought it fitting to have such a plaque made by Andrew - the first by a European potter as far as we know.
The EBPC are proud to support such artists, and we are very excited to be able to offer a range of 20 exclusive pots by this leading artist - COMING VERY SOON!
Thank you for supporting the EBPC and great European bonsai ceramics.
We have once again been very fortunate to be able to offer you the latest batch of exquisite pots by Ian Baillie - fresh out of the kiln.
This week, a few pots will be released each day from Wednesday - at 6pm (gmt). ... Thank you Ian, and enjoy these fantastic pots everyone!
Ian Baillie is a first-rate bonsai potter from near Edinburgh, in Scotland. He started to grow bonsai in 1974, and was instrumental in creating the Scottish Bonsai Association in 1978, which thrives to this day.
Since seeing John Naka in New York, and having studied drawing and painting, Ian went on to be a principal teacher of Art and Design, and he was inspired to create pots for the U.K., as he had seen in New York.
He has been producing bonsai pots now for over a generation, and is best known for his hand-thrown pots on his Swedish kick-powered wheel, and all pots are fired in his electric kiln to 1260 degrees C. He also however hand-builds a diverse range of shapes and forms, such as; rectangles, ovals, cascades, nanban, and free form containers.
The glazes are superbly made and applied; producing some really quite beautiful pieces, some of which have a fantastic aged / patina look to them. His pots are highly regarded and complement trees in competitions across Europe.
‘Pottery has its own magic where the alchemy of the elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water combine to make an object of beauty which can be used to harmoniously enhance the display of a fine bonsai tree. It's this that gives me the buzz that sustains my creativity.’
This, the latest range of pots by Sami Amdouni represents a diverse display of talent and ability.
From porcelain pieces carved in relief, to hand-thrown pots, to slab-built hexagonal cascades. .. And all with exquisite glazes of the highest quality!
The multi-talented Sami Amdouni is a master of glazes and carving, and we are thrilled to offer this limited range of pots to you - available on Wednesday at 6pm. (gmt).
