The colorful Little Jar is made on the potter's wheel from a white stoneware clay. It's decorated with colored slips and just a little carving for added depth to the design. A clear glossy glaze is applied before the final firing which makes the colors bright and give the pot a smooth glass-like feel.
Little jars are food safe so they can be used in the kitchen for condiments, salt, tea bags - whatever your imagination will allow. It is also content to serve simply as decoration displayed on a desk, mantle or shelf.
Little Jar with Black Knob
I use non-toxic, lead free glazes that are food safe on all of my dinner and tableware. They are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe (when pre-heated with the oven as appropriate). Hand washing, however, is recommended.
