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).
