Jomon refers to an ancient style
of Japanese pottery
which had a basket-like textured surface. Robert's pieces are turned on the
then, while the clay is still soft, a small rope is rolled across the pots
surface to create this texture.
During the firing, glaze pools in recessed areas, and creates wonderful
variations in color.
Jomon pots combine the
casualness of loosely thrown pots textured pots with the best qualities of
Sodium ( salt glazing), and fly
ash ( wood firing), create glaze on the pots, and on kiln shelves where the
pots sit.. Wadding prevents pots, in a wood firing and salt glazing, from
fusing to the kiln shelves.
The size, shape and materials used for wadding,
are important aesthetic considerations for the potter. In addition to
preventing pots from fusing to shelves, wadding acts as a color resist and
leaves flame flashing patterns.
