It snot finished yet, but it’s getting close.  The size is 16.5″ x 10.5″ x 3″ and it’s two stacked containers with a lid.   As always, click to embiggenify.

Hey, that’s a great container set. I’d like to see it when it’s all finished.

That’s pretty cool! Let’s chat someday about throwing salt on glaze. 🙂

Here’s another thought: I wonder if you could embed some sort of wire into the surface and see what sort of effect that would have.

I know. I’m weird.

I’m a product of my surroundings but I look at it, squint, and see the potential for a redwings logo.

Hey… you could make some money selling to WingNuts. Tell ’em it’s a collection jar for teeth.

Seriously though, is the strong (IMHO) resemblance to a flame intentional? Each bottom section is a closed-bottom container in it’s own right, too? Neato!

Jill, salt on glazes? I’ve never heard of that. Tell me more! As for a wire, I’m sorry but you really can’t do that. Clay bodies shrink when fired, quite a bit so at the higher temperatures. Metals generally expand, so you see where this is going – at the very least cracked and ruined pieces, or even something that literally explodes and ruins other people’s stuff. Now, what you can do is press wire into the surface of the clay when it’s moist and after it’s firmed up pull it out to leave the imprinted texture behind. That would probably be pretty cool, I think. You know what? I’m going to try that.

Redwings?

*Googles redwings* Ah, hockey. Ok, yah I see it. I associate red wings with work shoes.

No, I didn’t think of a flame when I designed it LK. The design was actually derived from the texture on the outside. I’ll go over that in the post later. And, yes – the two bottom pieces are closed at the bottom. I don’t know what I’ll ever put into this thing though.
