A small, round, wood fired jar with a natural bark cork.
This stoneware jar was colored by flames and glazed by the ash in the fire. It was fired in an anagama (Japanese for "cave kiln") stoked with wood every few minutes non-stop for five days.
The pictures can't do justice to the variation and hint of iridescence in the glaze or where the flames wrapped around the pot to color the clay, and you have to hold it to feel the juxtaposition of the glossy glaze and the satiny matte clay.
Some of these little jars were used in an episode of CBS's "Elementary".
About 3 3/4 inches high (without the cork) and about 4 3/4 inches wide.
Food-safe. Okay in microwave and dishwasher.
If you buy more than one item the shipping may be more than it should be. If it is I will combine the shipping and refund the overcharge. If you want an estimate of the actual shipping before buying contact me.
I accept Paypal, credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.
Orders are very carefully packed and shipped the next business day. In the states I ship Priority Mail, Parcel Select, Priority Mail Express, or UPS.
I ship Internationally to many countries. I do not ship to some countries where I've had problems with delivery, customs, or insurance, or other retailers have reported problems with lost shipments (such as Italy, Russia, and Brazil). Internationally I ship Priority Mail International and Priority Mail Express International.
In order to pack pots to prevent the Post Office and UPS from damaging them, they have to be very carefully packed with a lot of packing material, so shipping is expensive, especially internationally.
If you buy multiple items the shipping charge may be considerably more than the actual cost. If it is I will send you a refund for the overcharge. If you are buying multiple items and think the shipping charge is too much, let me know, but keep in mind that shipping pottery is very expensive because of the weight of fired clay and its fragility.
The closer you live to Georgia, the cheaper the shipping.
Customer Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, return the pottery (undamaged, carefully packed and insured) within 10 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping is not refunded.
Shipping both ways is refunded if the problem is caused by a mistake on my part or a defect in the pottery. Again, it must be returned within 10 days of receipt (You have 10 days to ship it back. It may take 15 or so days for us to receive it.)
If the pottery arrives damaged due to shipping, put the pottery back in the box packed the way it was before you opened it and contact me so that I can file a claim with the USPS or UPS.
