Red stoneware; 7.5″h, 4″w, 4’d; thrown, altered and carved; cone 10 reduction.

This piece was thrown and the slab legs/sides were added. Then the walls were carved. The lid is slab built. I saw a similar design in a gallery and wanted to recreate it. It was fun to make, except the slab work takes too long. This jar had a little fat brother but its leg exploded during the bisque firing because the venting hole I made was too small. The surface treatment is iron oxide and Shino.
