Covered Jar Series
I have continued to increase the size of my covered jars. I started this series with small tea caddy's and have progressed towards bigger jars. This jar is the largest so far and it is about 11 by 11 inches. I used the rope texture pattern on this jar like I have throughout this series. I feel that adding any sort of texture creates a more interesting pot. This texture also makes the pot a little bit out of round, which also makes the pot more exciting to me. I like these "loose" textures over the very clear round form. This underlying clarity of form is one of the major factors I look for in a "good pot".
