Handles it is!

After reading the comments from my last post, it seems all but one of you said “no” to adding handles to my large jar.  Of course I added handles on it before I read any of my comments, but I am glad I did.  I think a jar is meant to be picked up and I wanted to lend that functionality to this piece too.  It is a big jar, so sturdy handles would be needed.  Instead, the handles I gave this pot are thinner and smaller.  They give the jar the needed detail I thought it was lacking while adding a sense of function.

Yesterday I trimmed the foot of this jar, so it is now complete and drying out.  I am still having trouble with my kiln after its many repairs!  It is so frustrating!  I am still throwing a lot and bisque firing to keep up with my work.  I am starting to run out of space to put all my bisque pieces.

I have another busy day ahead of me in the studio and I am now firing my fourth test glaze!  I really need this one to come out!

    Good Morning Arryn,
    The handles look great. I was seeing it more as an “apothecary” type jar. Have you considered making an “apothecary” type set? Can you tell, that is one of my favorite styles?! I will pray your kiln starts working properly, as know how important that is to your work. Hugs!ReplyCancel
