Flour, Sugar & Rice – Oh My!



I have been wanting to make a canister set for a while now.  As I work on commissions and building up my Etsy shop, I have been able to tackle some of those projects that have always been in my mind – a canister set being one of them. I really wanted to make a canister set with jars big enough to actually hold their contents well.  I wanted the largest jar to be able to hold a whole bag of flour and for the next size down to hold a whole bag of sugar.  I think these will do that!  If not, they sure will come super close.  I have a canister set sitting on my counter that I LOVE.  It is also a four-piece set like this one.  In mine I hold, flour, sugar, brown rice and cream of wheat.  They do not have a rubber seal around them, but I have never had those little bugs you sometimes get in the flour, ever appear in my jars in the three years I have been using them.

Hopefully that will ring true for this canister set once it is fired and completed.  I definitely want to make more sets of these with slightly different silhouettes and handles.  I can’t wait to see how this set will look once it is glazed!

My favorite part about this set are the handles to the jars.  I wanted something a bit different and whimsical.  I have done this same double-loop on some of my mug handles and teapot handles as well.  I think it adds a lot to the piece.  Any suggestions for what glaze I should fire this set in?

    I want to see those beautifully shaped canisters when you finish firing them. I think I will want to place a special order for some. Let’s keep in touch about this project.ReplyCancel
