Ittel Bonsai Pottery
Young Choe’s kusamono creations that have ended up in Ittel pots
One very happy crowd! Young taught a kusamono/kokedama class at Longwood Gardens and I was her volunteer assistant. I made all of those kokedama platters, sold a lot of kusamono pots during the class and provided all of the moss for mossing the creations. It was a roaring success, but Covid has put off repeats of the in-person class.
Francesca is not the only creation that involved human anatomy. But this does make for a strange pot.
A free-form cracking-slip pot made with brown-firing clay and an iron wash.
Small extruded pot glazed with bamboo glaze. The hole in the side of the pot is the result of an entrained air-bubble bursting as it exited the extruder. It adds some character. The other thing to note is that plants grow.
An early octagonal extrusion pot with no record of the glaze.
