Second in my Japanese Kanji Jar series...

This character means 'Longevity', so I named it the 'Longevity Jar'. It comes with wishes for a long and healthy life :)

**Please note** I do not speak or write Japanese, so I have to "trust" that my source is accurate.

The character and all the other brown areas are unglazed clay, giving this piece a very earthy look. It is fully glazed on the inside, except around the rim, so it holds water. The bottom has a trimmed foot.

The rim of the pot has some chips in it (they actually look like ripples since I sanded them smooth), which were caused when I had to use a little force to separate the lid from the pot after firing. It was stuck on the inside in a few spots. The last photo shows a close-up of this. It's only visible with the lid off, and it's not on a glazed part of the piece. There are a total of six of these little indentations. I'm discounting the pot because of this, even though I don't think it really takes anything away from its beauty. It definitely does not affect the function of the jar.

Please see the enlarged images, so you can see the beautiful detail in the glaze!

Thank you for your interest in my one-of-a-kind pottery, hand crafted with *love*.

I use only lead-free non-toxic glazes. All pieces are food safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and oven safe. *Please note* that even though this item is dishwasher safe, I still recommend that you hand wash it. It is fragile, and may chip or break if something hits against it during a dishwasher cycle.

Each piece is signed by me.

New items are added to the ArtPottery Shop daily, so please check back often. Happy shopping!
