Anagama Pots (Special Wood-fired Pots)

Anagama Pots (Special Wood-fired Pots)

Anagama is a 7-day wood firing. The process creates one-of-a-kind pieces, even if the shapes are all the same.

During the firing, wood ash is melted onto the pots and becomes the glaze. The ash does not float uniformly through the kiln, so each pot receives different amounts and placement of ash, making it unique. And the glaze is not spread uniformly on the pot, so there are interesting and gorgeous effects.

Purple colouring is probably the second rarest effect, and I have a couple pots with this. Hare’s Fur (colourful streaks of glaze) is the rarest, and I have a couple pots with this.

The Wellington Potters Association has a specially built anagama kiln and fires it only once a year. It takes three to four days to load the kiln, and then the kiln is fired for seven days straight, after which the kiln is sealed and allowed to cool for an additional seven days. Because of the cost of the firewood and the time to load the kiln, fire it and unload it, anagama pots are much more expensive than your usual ceramic pottery.

Most bowls are 6–8m tall. The dark brown bowl is my largest piece offered here, at 10cm tall, and what looks like a crack on the inside is just a long indentation; the bowl does not leak.

Vases vary in height from 10cm to 15cm.

All anagama pots are food safe, microwaveable and dishwasher safe. (If the glaze has indentations, be sure to wash thoroughly to remove any food particles stuck in there.)

Crystalline Vases

Crystalline Vases

Crystalline glazes require very special combinations of ingredients and then a special firing in the kiln that takes two to three times longer than a standard glaze firing.

The crystals form at only a specific temperature. These crystals are a combination of zinc and silica.

These vases are fine for any use of any other vase, but the opening at the top is smaller than some vases have.

Kintsugi repaired bowl – One of a kind

Kintsugi repaired bowl – One of a kind

Kintsugi bowl for sale $35.00. A great Christmas gift, or for your own home.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics using gold (gold mica on these pieces). Each piece is unique, since no two pieces of ceramics will break apart in the same way as any other. It’s wabisabi in its truest form.

I placed this bowl too close to the kiln door for the glaze firing, and when I opened the door, the bowl fell apart. It’s a lovely bowl, so I repaired it with kintsugi, which makes it even more beautiful. This is truly a one-of-a-kind bowl.

See how one section looks different on the outside from the rest? This is the part that fused to the kiln blanket, resulting in an interesting pattern.

This bowl cannot be used with hot food nor in a microwave, but it’s fine for cereal or salad. Or set it in a place of honour in your home or use it to hold your keys or coins.

Raku Vases – $25–$35 each

Raku Vases – $25–$35 each

Raku vases. Raku is the process of firing to about 1,000°C and then removing from the fire and letting cool for the crackled glaze. For the black wigglies and all, various natural products are applied to the hot vase as it is cooling, items such as horse hair and feathers.

Because of the fast heating and cooling process, pots are sometimes damaged, such as cracks and chips.

These make great gifts. Or get one for your own home.

The clay in these vases is not vitrified, so the vases are not water tight.

Saggar pots

Saggar pots

Saggar pots are pots that are wrapped in aluminium foil along with various natural ingredients and then heated to around 1,000°C.

The natural ingredients burn but without oxygen so that they leave a burned impression on the pot. These ingredients include feathers, horse hair, copper wire, fruit bits and eggshells. The various ingredients leave various shapes and colours on the pots.

I have waxed a few of these pots, as you can tell from the shininess, but only a few as it takes a lot of time melting and buffing the wax on the pots.

These make great gifts. Or get one for your own home.

The clay in these vases is not vitrified, so the vases are not water tight.
