Porcelain Lidded Jar / Thistle

Handmade from scratch. This lidded jar could be used in the kitchen, bathroom or anywhere around the house. It will safely keep your jewellery, food, memories or other types of treasures. Use the jar to prepare your overnight oats, you can use it as a drinking beaker too. I use my jars to store cotton buds in the bathroom; in the kitchen have several jars for teas, coffee, sugar, salt etc. (please note jar it's not air sealed). And my favourite jar is in the studio, for nuts, dried fruits and other snacks.
Each jar is individual unique work, thought the jars are made using the same technique they are still very different from each other. On the inside jar is a white colour and glazed with transparent glaze; the outer surface is untreated and has a matte look and feel. By leaving the outer surface untreated I get a chance to finely sand each piece. It's so pleasant to hold sanded porcelain in hands. The jars can be stacked on top of each other to form a sculptural object.
