A jar to hold things. An urn for a pet, a small person, or if you are sharing a loved one's ashes. It holds 7 cups, or 56 ounces. This is quite a heavy piece. The lid fit is tight. 

I made this out of a white porcelain clay body.  I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim the bottoms with a foot ring so the bottoms are glazed as well. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique in a soft turquoise blue suggesting the 1970's. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the entire piece. This piece has 3 small butterflies in gold on the body and one slightly larger gold butterfly on the lid. These were added in a third kiln firing and really are 22 karat gold. 

Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. It is approximately 8.25" tall x 5" wide. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom. 

As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher, microwave safe. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
