White stoneware, Oxidation, Cone 10

I found working in my home studio a bit lonely a few months into the Shelter-in-Place order. So, I asked my, artist/graphic designer/software designer, husband  if he would like to collaborate with me  in hopes to spend some quality time together. Several months of form, surface and glaze explorations developed into several series of collections. This Blue Covered Jar is part of the Urban Garden series exploring hand carved designs reminiscent of our patio garden.
