Cookie Jar

So the idea here was to make a cookie jar with a domed lid and a knob that was separate from the lid.

The knob was to be formed and fired separately.

I made a 'cradle' for the shell so it would nest into the area where it joined the lid.

There is a hole in the top of the dome lid and a corresponding area in the shell where the two are connected with a small bolt.

The inside of the shell is solid with no indication a connection exists.

When both the lid and knob had been fired, I used good old Goop and closed the end of the bolt with a small nut.

The design is an homage to the nautical decorations on pieces I so admired at the Royal Worcester Factory Museum in the U.K.

And the jar is currently is at the Art Stop in Tacoma, WA.
