Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Sometimes the boldest decorative choice a potter can make is to choose less. This hand-thrown porcelain jar is the very simplest of ideas -- pure, voluptuous, rounded shape and glowing red glaze with sunbursts of gold. For a pleasant surprise, when you open the jar you are treated to an amber celadon liner.
This jar measures about 11 inches to the top of the handle, and 9 inches in diameter. That means that, volume-wise, it could hold a gallon with room to spare.
Whether you use it as a cookie jar or canister, or decorate the family mantle with it, it's the simple but beautiful ideas that decorate this jar rather than affectations of the latest fad. It's that simple beauty that we tend to enjoy for a lifetime....and even beyond, as we pass these treasures on.
