Wye Oak Jar I by Ann Krestensen

Wye Oak Jar I
Ann Krestensen

These smoked fired jars were thrown on the potters wheel, coated with terra sigliatta slip and low fired in an electric kiln. The jars were then smoke fired with oak leaves. The handles are pieces of the Wye Oak tree that were attached by drilling two holes in the wood to match the holes in the top of the lid. A small piece of dowel was glued into the lid and the piece of Wye Oak to secure the handle

Dimensions:
14 wide x 11 high x 8 deep
