These bottles were made to hold anything from vinegar to beer.
The one he gave us held ginger beer.
This bottle is brown not real discriptive, but a useful pot.
It stuck with me.
There was something about the shape that I feel in love with.
Since then I have acquired a few buddies to keep the first one company.
One favorite one is out of a white clay body, slat glazed it is just simply a sweet and beautiful pot.
Every once in a while I get the shape in my head and have to make these straight up bottles.
Mine never have quite the shape I want.....but I find them fun to play with.
I also like that I can make them all a bit different and then play with some stamps and carving on the upper part, giving the wood ash glazes a place to settle in or run.
How about you? Is there a shape that you are "drawn" to?
For me it is bottles. There is something about their quiet presents or elegance that draws me in.
