I made Autumn Rio on the potters wheel from a tan stoneware clay body and I threw the lid separately, using calipers for measurements.  The lid is seated in a galley with a flange that drops down inside the neck of the pots.  While a unique and fisted finial completes the form.  I approach making finials much as I approach my brushwork:  It must be made in a fluid, spontaneous motion to capture the energy and honesty of the moment.

Beautifully rounded – a full belly that closes at the neck and then cups the lid.  I added 2 twists to either side of the pot to match the finial and define the pot’s front and back, so to speak.

I was experimenting with all of my glazes and techniques for this latest Jar | Vase Series. Here, I began by staining the entire surface with a red iron oxide.  Next I poured blue and gold glazes from top and from the bottom.  The result is a layered, fluid golden-edged surface.

Use Autumn Rio as a storage jar.  And it’s food safe.  Or use it as a vase because it’s water tight.  Add a warm and intriguing focal point to any shelf, table, or nicho.
