This handmade cookie jar is intended for real-world use on your kitchen countertop or in the pantry. The jar is intentionally given substantial weight on the bottom to make it stable enough to stay put when hands reach in to grab something.
The lid fits easily on top, and features a surprise nest on the underside, as well as a mini-nest hidden inside the finial on top.
The design is hand-drawn using slips and glazes, then the entire jar is covered in a food-safe clear glaze, ensuring that the illustration will never fade. The clear glaze over the white stoneware brings a simple, modern aesthetic that stands out in your kitchen. This jar was hand thrown on a potter’s wheel and decorated in my Easthampton, Massachusetts studio.
