I made this lovely vase, jar or lidded container, on the wheel, then I spent hours with a little paint brush making an intersecting design with black, white, yellow and mauve (rose or pink) dots, one dot at a time. I did have some lovely music on at the time, but oh, my gosh, the hours I spent dotting this pot! I wanted the natural color of the terra cotta clay (the warm red orange or "terra cotta" color) to remain but wanted to add a little decoration. Colored dots just seemed to fit the bill. The glaze itself is clear and simply highlights the natural color of the clay and the dots I added.

As for the size: The jar (or vase), without the lid on, is 6 1/2 inches tall - with the lid on it's is 7 1/4 tall. The lid fits perfectly. The jar (or vase) sits up on nicely rounded foot, which is 3 inches in diameter. The vase is 6 inches in diameter at the very widest. Volume wise, it holds 7 1/2 cups of liquid.

Although it was made as a "lidded container", it can be displayed without the lid and looks perfectly fine. Terra Cotta clay is a low fired clay and like a terra cotta casserole or baking dish it will absorb liquid and although you can wash it and bake in it, it will slowly but surely absorb some of the smells or the items you put it in.

It has my mark, a kitty paw print on the side and my signature and the year it was made on the bottom.
