I thought I would try and reproduce the principles of a storage jar by Michael Cardew featured on the front cover of Ceramic Review in 1982.
It is thrown in three parts: 1. the main body (allow to dry for a while….or use blow torch!), 2. throw the neck as a separate component. Put the main body back on the wheel and attach the neck. 3. the lid.
I surprised myself by how relatively simple it was to do….and more amazingly the lid fits. I just need to attach some handles now. Admitedly the shape isn’t quite the same, his has a more rounded body, but the elements are there.
This is a definite throwing breakthrough. Some of these pots might even be useful!
