WOW… Amazing Tianlong Dragon Bonsai pot

Everyone knows of my love a craft potters in the UK from the potters showcases that I have done over the last 12 months. My first Potter showcase was Stone Monkey, I have watch Andy Pearson hone his skill over the years to become a truly creative artisan with clay. Andy has created many ‘collector’s edition’ pots but his latest shown here takes them to a whole new level.

The pot has an unglazed cracked, fissured and distressed look and is adorned by a Chinese Dragon called Tianlong who was a Celestial Dragon prominent in Chinese Mythology. The pot comes in a handmade box of English Oak with a solid silver Stone Monkey Ceramics Stamp sunk into the top of the box. The piece is fully fired to 1260 degrees centigrade making it functional and frost proof. This pot will be a welcomed addition to any ceramic collector and bonsai aficionado alike.

A signed certificate of authentication also accompanies the piece. If you want to take a closer look at this take a look HERE

Bonsai Potter Showcase #1 Andy Pearson Stone Monkey

Andy Pearson at Stone Monkey Ceramics, is the first potter to be featured in my ‘Bonsai Potter Showcase”. I will featured a new potter once a month here on my blog, other potters that have been ‘interviewed’ to date are:  Dan Barton and David Jones of Walsall Ceramics.

I have known Andy since his early days working in ceramics and I am fortunate to have some of his early work… including his first foray into Raku. Over the years Andy has developed a keen eye for detail, his work being very much in demand by the Shohin specialist. A great artist and I advise you to buy now as The Monkeys work will be collectable pieces in the future, as has been demonstrated with Andy’s annual ‘Collector’s Edition’ pots. Limited Edition or ‘one off’ pots that have shaken up the bonsai world with their finesse and beauty.
