Jars

One of my favorite items to make are jars. They are also one of my favorite items to use. For me they hold lots of possibilities. You can "put things in them", that is useful to me.
These little guys stand under 4" and were made with salt in mind. My daughter asked me to make something for a gift which could hold salt- I came up with these and have been making them ever since.
They will also hold, lose change, jewelery, sugar, and whatever your imagination wants to put in them.
I have made some for the next kiln load, but I really like the little matt yellow one in this picture.......not that I don't like the iron red one as well- we'll it's like your kids- you love them both!

I have one of the salt cellars above, and love it. Use it everyday.

But I have to say that I'm falling quickly in love with these little round gourd shaped pots!

They are cool little jars. Wish I could have multiples in every color.

I like the jars too, but that little round one below is so beautiful.

Actually, Amanda's salt cellar is the one that started it all! Hee hee!

the little pumpkin jar I call my ode to Martha- I watched her carve gourds one day- this was pre- prison and I thought- way not make one in clay and it would not rot- so I did and I am still making them.
And yes Amanda's jar was one of the first of the salt jars.
