Wedding Jar Part 3
Now the jar is waiting to be fired, drying should take about a week. I have engraved the name of the couple on the lid, along with their wedding date. You may be able to see the square knot on the top for the handle; symbolic of the joining of a couple in matrimony. I did shorten the base by about 1/2" to emphasize the neck and lid area a little more. Scraping, finishing and some incised linear patterns were added to the shoulder. these things all help out in adding detail to the glaze surface. After posting this picture I notice the dent in the rim of the lid and will smooth that in. Glazing should be in about two weeks.
