Carson Small Ginger Jar
Carson is so full of interest it is crack-a-lacking! The unique glaze pattern you will find on this piece is called crazing. Sometimes this is seen as a defect in glaze, but other times it is the desired effect. Carson is an example of planned crazing to enhance the final appearance of the form. This jar is one of the first I had the vision to make. As such you'll find my signature inside the lid instead of on the bottom of the base. Carson displays creamy white crazed with a dark green to brown dancing line outside. Inside you will find a mostly creamy white with some lines of ruby red. This small jar measures 3 3/8" wide by 3 1/2" tall.
Hand wash only. This jar is safe for foods such as wrapped candies. Do not microwave.
The uses of this jar are endless. It would be a great place to store a treasure that needs safe keeping such as your favorite piece of jewelry, found items such as stones and shells or pieces of candy you're keeping for future consumption. This jar could also be a unique urn used as a resting place for a member of your family who have passed on. In creating each jar I have considered every option when making the decisions for form and glaze so that each is as unique as the item or memory being kept safe inside.
My jar sizing is as follows:
Mini Jars are less than 3" x 3".
Small Jars are larger than 3" x 3" and smaller than 5" x 5".
Medium Jars are larger than 5" x 5" and smaller than 7" x 7".
Large Jars are larger than 7" x 7" and smaller than 9" x 9".
Extra Large Jars are larger than 9" x 9'.
If any measurement of the jar (width or height) falls in to a larger category I put it in the higher category.
I have tried to capture and reproduce the colors for each piece as close as possible to original. Each and every screen may cause the item to appear slightly different based on many factors.
