This little black ceramic jar was fired to cone 10, in a down-draft gas kiln, fired in reduction. It was fired @kcclayguild in Waldo, just south of Kansas City. It's great for holding your jewelry, or spare change and makes a great gift for you or someone you care about. Looks great in your kitchen holding your salt and pepper, next to the stove, or fill it with cotton balls and put it in your bathroom. Another great location would be the office or on your desk at work. The options are endless and only limited by your imagination and needs.
On the outside blacks and deep iron reds are predominate, the Japanese tenmoku style glaze is black where its thicker and iron red where its thinner. I chose this black glaze because it accentuates the slanted vertical lines carved into the outside with my serrated metal rib. The inside is glazed with a white food safe glaze. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. This jar would make an excellent addition to anyones collection.
