Just finished this one this morning. Started it yesterday, but the shoulder needed time to firm up before finishing the neck and lip. It started raining cats and dogs yesterday, so it wasn’t in danger of drying out too much. The kiln hole is full enough now to have a nice morning swim…
This jar ended up at about 48 inches tall and about 5.2kg. Both those numbers will shrink quite a bit as it dries. It’s bigger than the onggi style pot I did and is about half the weight. I think that says more about my ability to make onggi pots than the onggi technique itself, though. Oh well, practice, practice….
All the jars so far, side by side
All the jars so far, side by side, with their hats on (if the mouth is not covered, sometimes it shrinks too fast and stress cracks appear around the base.) After they have firmed up enough to turn over, I’ll do that and let them dry completely.
