lots o' lids.

I've made the last of the pots for this cycle. I decided to spend some time with lidded pieces, I don't do lots of those and I was able to try some new things.

Sugar jars. I normally don't make pots like this all the same but I made these as a demo for my ceramics 2 students, their next project is repeating a form so I showed them my methods and some tricks.


Trimmed and knobbed.


Square-ish jars. I was really concerned with these while working on them but I think they turned out ok, not fantastic, but ok.


Lidded dishes.


6# jars...with lids.


No more clay, bummer. I have 1200#s in the drying racks but it's been raining non-stop here so I imagine it'll be a few weeks before it's ready. Time to start chopping wood.


Cheers!

I think the square-ish jars have great form, their tight knob is great. I especially like the placement of your chop mark. Very nice touch and will look cool when the glaze holds to it.
