    Versatile Little Jar

    June 9th, 2010

    Over ten years ago, Bill Barker sat down at his potter’s wheel to throw a jar.  When he was finished, he was particularly happy with his work.  The lines were nearly perfectly even and the shape was very pleasing to behold.  He and Lois like the piece so much, they decided to make a slip mold so they could forever replicate the jar.

    At Jean Elton Studio, we still use that mold today and it is not only the basis for our jars, but for many other pieces as well!  We are constantly finding new uses for the shape, for anything from lamps to candleholders!  See the gallery below for all the various pieces that have been born from the same jar mold.
