Yellow Lidded Jar

Looking for a place to hide your sweets from the rest of the family? They’ll never suspect this wheel-thrown lidded jar as the host of your hidden treasure, even if you’re always lurking suspiciously nearby.

This ware is made from an earthenware clay and features bright vibrant colors. This piece is started on the wheel for by making a cylinder. Once off the wheel the piece is hand-worked to alter the surface and shape. The piece is then glazed and fired to 2100°F. After firing, the piece is sandblasted and wet/dry hand-sanded for a soft, smooth feel. Each hand-made object is unique.

This lidded Jar is unglazed on the inside makes it not recommended for storing liquids. I use these forms to store coffee grounds, cookies, and my emotions. It looks great on the counter or in a cupboard.

The inside of the vessel will begin to patina over time, like a cast iron skillet. I recommend a combination of the dishwasher and hand washing since the nature of handmade pots are less durable than industrial. People have been known to put my earthenware pots in the microwave, but it is not recommended it because it is the iron (metal) that is giving the clay its rich red color. This high iron content could cause pots to crack in a microwave. I do fire my clay hotter than normal earthenware in order to vitrify the body and make it as durable as possible.
