Hand made

At Jars all our making, glazing, finishing and handling, and know-how of the material and even its hazards are the basics of a long learning process. Our hand-made skills are evident throughout :

In making a perfectly refined clay mix.
In casting the pieces.
In sponging and fettling edges and rims.
In applying the colored glaze.
In stacking ware in the kilns and taking it out.
For sorting by touch, feel and sight to control quality.

So many of these workshop secrets are proudly shared between one ceramicist to another.
