pottery: salt keeper

Yay, we have a salt keeper!
[[stoneware clay, salt kiln]]
I really love this piece. It was fired in the salt kiln, which gives it that unique texture and appearance on the outside. No glaze was applied whatsoever to the outside, that's just what the salt does to the clay. Cool huh? I did add some black engobe to make the letters pop on the lid.

I should be picking up a few more of my pieces later this week. and I can't wait until I take another class.
