I made Taos Salt Cellar on the potters wheel, with a seated lid and a flat bottom.  A low profile jar, wider than it is high,  4″ diameter x approximately 2″ high.

The ‘Taos’ glaze consists of overlapping blue, green, cream, & gold glazes.  I dip and pour the 4 glazes in a technique I have developed that results in a surface that references Northern New Mexico:  blue skies, green mountains, cream puff clouds, and golden sunshine.  For this series, I stained the outer portion of the lid and the rim of the bowl with a red iron oxide.  The stain is permanent and reminiscent of the Mission School.

Store your favorite salt for a pinch or teaspoon ready when you need it.  Keep it on the table or by the stove.  Or use as a sugar bowl.  Or to store sweetener packets.  Maybe the coin from your pockets needs a catching jar.  Or your paper clips need a gathering pot.

You can even bake a little brie or dip in this gem.  Use it to serve salsa and then cover and pop the left overs in the refrigerator!

Taos Salt Cellar makes a great gift when you are the guest at dinner or a holiday soiree; or to say “happy birthday”, “welcome to the neighborhood”, or “thank you”!

It’s a little treasure for the right stuff.
