This are two of the Pieces I made for Ceramics II. I can see some serious improvement from Ceramics I.

This is a green lidded jar, I actually threw in one piece (which I am insanely proud of). I did actually forget to glaze the inside...but I can still use it. It is a glazed with a translucent green and iron oxides.




This is a vase I made, I like the semi-pear shape it has, and the glaze is awesome. It looks black with oxides and splashes blue.


I have a bunch more, but they haven't been fired yet.

I love your thread title! Your jar is a really pleasant shape. Not typically jar-shaped at all, which is what I like about it. And even in the photo the glaze on the semi-pear vase looks good, so I bet it's great in real life.

I love the glazes you used! Tell me....when you throw a lidded jar in one piece do you need to make a gallery for the lid to sit on? At what stage do you make it since the lid will be too wet to remove?

Thank you both! Cheesy

Um when I 'cut' the lid off, I just used my needle tool and went in at an angle in order for it to be able to sit on the jar. I didn't do anything else. While it isn't the sturdiest setting, it worked out fine as it was my first lidded container on the wheel. It will stay on but if jostled too much it will move.

I actually messed up the lid because I was a bit over eager and cut it when it was still a little too wet. If you were to do it in one piece I'd let it dry a little bit. It would have been easier to remove. When I dried it though, I just put a paper towel in between the two pieces, that way they would still fit together.

You inspired mew to make a lidded bowl, though I threw the lid separately.

I was eager as well and couldn't stop fiddling with the lid after I took it off the wheel. It's distorted now but still charming!

Yay! I'm so glad you tried it! It's so hard not to keep from messing with it, especially when it's something new. If you have any pictures, I'd love to see it.

It's being bisqued as we speak so eventually when it's all glazed I'll definitely post a pic!
