The Nappy Pot



Pat Kennedy of "Mirkwood Forest” pottery is my most favourite bonsai pot maker in Australia. He inspired me to start making bonsai pots and shared many of his techniques with me. I just wish I could meet with him more often. I once asked him about the surface texture on one of his pots and he told me that he uses a disposable baby nappy. The nappy I needed came along with my one-year-old niece last year. After that, I couldn't come up with any more excuses for not trying to make a similar pot. Images above show my first attempt at the ‘nappy pot’. By the way, ‘nappy pot' is exactly how Pat called it.
