Please JOIN US in welcoming new EBPC member - Igor Carino, of Italy !
Please join us in welcoming a world-class artist, ‘Igor Carino’ as an EBPC member!
This inspirational artist has dedicated himself to bonsai for 20 years and has been creating bonsai ceramics for 18. For the past decade, Igor has been researching how to realize his dream – creating bonsai ceramics through the fusion of traditional pot-building principles with cutting-edge modern technology.
His exceptional 3D-Printed pots won 1st prize at the famous pot contest of the 47th Gafu ten in Kyoto, as well as contests in Europe.
These fascinating pieces have incredible detail in their design and patterned finish, yet retain all of the charms of old Japanese anagama-fired ceramics. Each pot from this process is unique, and the pots have a superb wood-fired sheen, with flame signatures, and natural ash deposit glazes.
Please read about these innovative pots and this great artist on Igor Carino’s EBPC Profile
A LIMITED EDITION RANGE of Gafu ten winning design pots will be IN-STORE on FRIDAY at 18.00 GMT!
A select range of these Gafu-ten winning design pots will be made available for EBPC customers tomorrow (Friday 21st April) in the EBPC Online Store.
These award-winning pots are hand built at the base, and then, once designed and a computer program is built, they are 3D printed using traditional clay - high-quality Japanese or French stoneware. The pots are constantly attended to during this long process and then are finished by hand. The rim is then hand built, and once leather hard, areas of the pots are smoothed to a polished finish. The pots are then wood-fired for 11 hours, another process that requires constant attention, in a special high-temperature wood-fired kiln (1350°C), designed and built by ceramic artist and kiln expert Frederick L. Olsen. A mix between traditional Western wood kilns and Japanese kilns.

Exquisite new Ian Baillie pots!
In-store from Wednesday 24th 6pm (gmt)
This week, a few pots will be released each day from Wednesday - at 6pm (gmt). ... Thank you Ian, and enjoy these fantastic pots everyone!
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.’
