I haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd first announce that our website has been redesigned with lots of new images and features--all thanks to my wife Sharon! http://www.langbonsai.com/
We've included a feature that we hope is helpful when trying to communicate very subtle design characteristics about a pot. In the "Pot Styles" link in the navigation drop down menus, click on the top, Pot Styles link. You will see a lot of examples of pot shape characteristics from various wall profiles to Lip and Foot treatments. A lot of our glazes are seen on this page as well but there is a separate link for Glazes that shows several examples of many of our current selection. This will give folks an understanding of how the same glaze can often look very different because of several factors. The shape and surface of the pot it is on, the thickness of application, the placement in the kiln and the particular nature of each firing.
We continue to tweak and add to this new version and I would like to get any feedback folks would care to offer.
Thanks for looking. Hit your "refresh" key if you are getting the old site.
