Lidded Pots

My new favorite thing to make is lidded pots. They are probably the most complex thing I have learned to make so far and I made three of them during my most recent pottery class.

This one was supposed to be red. I even put a note in it for the instructor so he would know to put it in the right place in the kiln. Unfortunately that didn't happen...
The knobs were thrown on the lid itself. So, after the lid was formed, I put a round piece of  clay on the top of the lid and formed it on the wheel. It was really daunting at first but a lot of fun once I got the hang of it. The one thing I do need to get better at is fitting the lid to my pot. These were all a little too small.
