Thunder Jar, which could be a decorative urn, was a joy to make. Thrown on the potter’s wheel and fired in a wood burning kiln to 2400 degrees.
It has a nicely shaped body and trimmed foot. The red shino glaze has a metallic sheen. The natural ash glaze embedded on the pots shoulder adds depth and fascination. A bold, energetic brushwork across the belly of this Thunder Jar. The finial is a fluid, spontaneous, twist of rolled clay. It is completely safe to store food items or even to serve from.
The jar is more than ample size for use as a cremation urn, with room for two average sized individuals. But you certainly don’t have to use it that way. Why limit the ways in which you might integrate this beauty into your life. 13″ H to the top of the lid’s finial x 10″ diameter.
