Animal Jars

As an elementary art teacher I often had my students make clay animals. It feels like I made hundreds or maybe thousands of them as samples over the course of my career. I did not really occur to me until recently to start adding these little animal sculptures to my thrown pots. They are fun to make and give the pots a quirky, whimsical personality. Below are some animal jars I made for some friends of mine. These are all fired to cone 10 in my gas kiln with Winokur matte glaze on them.
Monkey Jar for Joe
Puppy Jar for Allie
Lion Jar for Jack
A Scorpion Jar for Me :)
