The Door's a Jar




Finally after a week of making the jars are finished and the door has opened so that I can move on to something else. As you in the clay world well know clay needs to be handled when it is ready to be handled not when you are ready to handle it. My one day at Sheridan left the jars under plastic and the bottoms set up more than I would have liked. I wanted to add a European foot but the clay was almost bone dry. I didn't have a chuck big enuff in the studio so necessity being the mother of invention I put a coil around a 5 gallon plastic bucket and trimmed the jars in that.
