Aysha Peltz "Lidded Jar"
Process: Wheel thrown, altered, ^10 oxidation fired
Dimensions: 12" x 12" x 12"
"Lidded jars have always been a favorite form of mine to throw. The challenge of making a pot that functions yet alludes to something other than the jar it is has been a problem I have loved solving. Much of the reason I make pots is to create a volume. Each time I make a jar form like this, I aim to push the walls out to their maximum without pushing them so far that they begin to feel tenuous or deflate. This moment of stretching and pushing is when I find myself most excited and engaged in my process."
