Still more canisters

May 29, 2014

I just keep making canister sets…but that’s ok…I enjoy making them.  They are challenging.  Here’s a few photos of my latest:

Lately, I’ve been making lots of stoneware canisters.  Partly because they seem to be selling well and partly because I just like making them.  I also like pots with lids.  Here’s the latest batch.

July 3, 2013   I’ve finally made some stoneware canister sets that will hold 5 lbs. of flour and 5 lbs. of sugar.   The largest canister is 10 3/4 inches to the top of handle.  Now that I know the dimensions they need to be and how much clay to use they will be a lot easier to make.

Lately, I’ve been working on stoneware canister sets.  I thought I could make a canister large enough to hold 5 lbs of flour on my first try…when will I learn with clay things rarely go right the first time.  Hopefully, I’ll have it down pat soon.
