This small round covered jar has an intricate pattern on the lid. The jar is perfect for sugar, coffee, tea, even jewelry, and looks beautiful on the counter when not in use.
The intricate pattern on the covered jar was drawn and then hand carved. The covered jar and lid were thrown on the potter’s wheel and then finished and assembled when partially dry. After a bisque firing to 1900 degrees, glazes are applied with bulb syringes to different sections of the work, giving a cloisonné-like effect. All work is made of stoneware clay and fired to over 2100 degrees.
The covered jar holds 10 ounces.
Size: 4-1/4″ wide x 3-1/2″ tall
The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
