This is a jar I threw in one piece, incised the lid then trimmed them apart. The whole piece is covered in various engobes and underglazes, carved and fired in an electric kiln.

Thanks! You just throw a fully closed off shape, then take a paint key or some other similar shaped object and create a groove which will become the lip the lid sits over. Cut apart when leather hard then trim lid and jar until they fit.

and also cut a hole for air to release so your pretty pot don't crack open while drying... I been practicing this style, hmmm whats his name Van Gilder or something like that?


I love this one, my Fav... Very good job, how much practice did it take you before it happened?


I have tried 2 times so far, both after work and dead tired. hey I tried though LOL, went a tad to deep on 1 and pop goes the weasel... on the second I had it but forgot to make a release hole and slept for 12 hrs and it cracked lol...
