Rounded and straight canisters

Dec 2,2015

So, I’ve fired those rounded and straight canisters from my last post and I plan on making more.  The rounded canisters work great with my glazes.  The straight canisters are working good too but, right now, I prefer the rounded ones.  The lids on these canisters fit on the insides rather than sitting on top.

Still more canisters

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.

Canister sets

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.
