Open Studio at the Arts & Industry building in Florence

Open studios at the Arts and Industry building gave the opportunity to stop, clean up, put out some food, and display some work. The last pieces I will have finished for open studios are these sugar jars. I love making these jars. I like the opportunity the lid provides to create hidden designs underneath that are discovered as you use the pot.

I have been thinking about how to bring the colors, patterns, and layered effects that I use in my work from my interest in textile design into the forms of my pots. I've been making small bisque stamps out of antique buttons to use as details on pots. Here I am using them on the finials of these jars.
