Title: Bamboo planter pots
Post by: Tanza on April 05, 2014 12:20:48 AM

 I have 3 lucky bamboo in my kitchen and wanted to make a set of tall planter pots for them with water slide decals.

These are hand build Raku, 2 were covered in earthernware slip, not to self the 2 bodies don't mesh so well, the 3rd I painted with a white glaze only.

The images were applied as water slide decals.

I love the way they turned out.

These are wonderful! Did you make the decals yourself or purchase them ready made?

I had them printed out for me.

My Tafe lecturer just bought a HP printer, it has iron oxide in the black ink so when it goes into a bisque fire it burns out and sinks into the glaze a red/brown colour.
We use water slide decals and print them ourselves.

These are really great! They have a really organic quality to them. I especially like the crow image.

Congrats on being featured in the 'best of' list for 2014!!

After having them in the shed due to a bud infestation :( I finally brought them inside. They nicely fit a pickle jar inside them :) to keep my bamboo in water instead.

These are beautiful! Love the whole set.
Can imagine them looking great together with the green of the bamboo.
