The colorful Little Jar is made on the potter's wheel from a white stoneware clay. It's decorated with colored slip and just a little carving for added depth to the design. The outside of the pot is left unglazed except for the knob on top of the lid. The knob and the inside are finished with a clear gray glossy glaze before the final firing to add interest and a little surprise inside.
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.

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.
