Yeah, Tom is going to make mine. I haven't decided what I want yet. Come October, I'm probably going to ask him for his advice on what kind of L0t@ Pitcher, based on L*n@, and the other O*tl@w items! Smile

Ya know, thinking about it, is a ceramic L0t@ pitcher safe to drink out of? In other words, the inside of the thing is uncoated, so anything other than water...do you see where I'm going? Just wondering.

You cant really scrub out the inside workings of a lota pot (although you could try a rinse out with Milton) so its not particularly safe, saying that I do drink from it in my sideshow routine (but I also eat a lightbulb and razorblades, so I consider the risk negligable)

I am thinking of having a master potter make me a Lota Pitcher...how would I best describe what I need him to do? There aren't any "instructions" available for potters are there?

Tom knows how to make the basic Lota Pitcher. It's the design, color, etc...that's what we have to decide.

Their site is under construction, so give Tom a call.
He hand makes amazing pottery Lota Vases and Bowls,
he not only has several sizes, from coffee mug to large,
he’s do custom work with design, style, color, size.

His Lota inspired one of my favorite presentations,
and it’s in “Tales of Enchantment” with a photo of mine.
Tom’s a great guy and his prices are very fair too.

I have just unloaded the kiln of lota pots. I have two brown, shiny glaze mugs that are colonial style (same glaze as they used in Boston circa 1760), a small lota that is blue and only 3 inches tall..... and a very special one of a kind lota vessel that has three sculpted feathered turtles on the side.... just perfect for one whopper of a story. For those of you who have asked..... e-mail me and I will send photo. medimagic@cs.com

@ Dougini...... my lotas, mugs, pitchers, and vases are all glazed inside AND in the chamber as well. Safe to drink out of? I would recommend.... water, tea, perhaps whiskey... but stay away from acid liquids like orange juice, soft drinks, or any dairy product.... as they may sour. I have used mine for years and drink the water from it..... I have made vases, roman double handled vases, mugs, steins, viking horns, pitchers and teacups into lotas. I love to make unique one of a kind pieces to fit a person's needs.
@ Cunningham...... nope, no instructions for potters. I am an artist (watercolors) and potter as well as a magician so I am very familiar with what has to be done to make them. My own pottery professor told me that a potter could NOT make the pot as I make it...... bingo, a challenge...... and now I have my own method that works great.

From the post above the new game is:
"Let's try to stump Tom!"
(I don't think we can though...)

Seems like he's made everything but an ostrich egg into a Lota Vase…
can we find a bizarre story/project that will send him back to the drawing board?

I've seen (and owned) his magnificent pottery, it is art, not just craft.

Oh, and if anyone does the Benson Bowl routine.... Tom makes a version with a pottery Toad House and little toad sponges, cute and very story worthy.

Magically,
Walt

PS Tom! Get your website up again so you can show off photos of your work!

What kind of prices are we talking about, I know custom work commands a higher price.

Michael.... that depends on what you want. A simple pottery small vase sells for 30 bucks..... but it is simple and no special things. Most of the pitchers I make sell for 125 and some as high as 200... depending on what you want. Need something affordable? Shoot me an e-mail or post and I will see what I can do.....
And the saying continues..... "I just wanna win the lotta".... Smile

The one pictured on pg 102...that's like the one I want. That'll take saving for a couple of months...

Tom,still in search of that sumptin,sumptin...we,talked about!
You said the lota is glazed inside and in the ***mber, does the out side of pot,have to be glazed also in the process ?
I think it would be more correct,not to have outside glazed,maybe just fired,as she was broken at end of ritual!

Not,breaking mine! Smile

The glazing of the pot on the inside prevents the liquid from seeping through the microscopic pores in the clay, even though it has gone through vitrification in the firing. The pot does NOT have to be glazed on the outside......
