Description

Based on an Art Nouveau button design, the pattern on this small round covered jar is a mix of stylized floral and peacock feather motifs. It’s perfect for sugar, coffee, tea, even jewelry, and looks beautiful on the counter when not in use. The intricate pattern on the covered jar was drawn and then hand carved. The covered jar and lid were thrown on the potter’s wheel and then finished and assembled when partially dry. After a bisque firing to 1900 degrees, glazes are applied with bulb syringes to different sections of the work, giving a cloisonné-like effect. All work is made of stoneware clay and fired to over 2100 degrees. The covered jar holds 10 ounces. Size: 4-1/4″ wide x 3-1/2″ tall The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe. Please specify color when ordering

One Acre Ceramics

About the Studio: One Acre Ceramics pottery and tiles are handmade by Sarah and Thomas Gelsanliter at their studio in southeastern Michigan. Sarah and Thomas often draw on the colors and patterns of their surroundings while creating their work. Luminous glazes and intricate designs are the hallmarks of the art pottery and tiles made at One Acre Ceramics, and each piece is hand-crafted to be both beautiful and functional. With his background in design and tile-making, Thomas draws and hand carves all of the designs used at One Acre Ceramics. Covered jars, vases, candleholders, and other vessels are thrown on the potter’s wheel by Sarah. Both artists work on the pieces at different points in the process, allowing them to create finished work that highlights their unique skills. Working together also allows them to draw on their varied backgrounds in clay and means daily conversations about designing new pieces, expanding surface treatments, and solving technical challenges. About the Artists: Thomas began working with clay in the 1990s in Alexandria, VA and received his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He worked as a moldmaker as well as a production manager at Motawi Tileworks in Ann Arbor, MI for nearly 9 years. Thomas’ designs are influenced by historical furniture, industrial plate ware, architecture, and classic Arts & Crafts and folk art iconography. Sarah has been working with clay since 1992. She worked as a production potter at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan for 10 years. She has taught ceramics classes and workshops at Yourist Studio, Pewabic Pottery, the Ann Arbor Potters Guild and the Ann Arbor Art Center. Sarah spent a year living in Japan, visiting studio potters throughout the country, and traveling to Korea, China, and Thailand. Her work is influenced by Asian art, Japanese brushwork and Arts & Crafts design. About the Work: All work is made of stoneware clay and fired to over 2100 degrees. The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe. Mugs, cups and bowls are microwave- and dishwasher-safe. Handwashing is recommended for all other work.
