After a few days went by I emailed her again and suggested that a local potter might agree to make these at a cheaper price in exchange for the publicity plus there would be no added shipping cost. I guess if someone lived within 30 or so miles of this dairy they could pick up a little business that way. With me in southeast Ohio and her in upstate New York, I don't see that working out.
Freshly thrown french butter crock parts. Lid (left) holds butter. Crock (right) holds water.
Once both parts dry to leather-hard they can be trimmed.
Working on these honey jars too. Same kind of lid as the french butter crocks, but a lot easier to fit.
Also threw a lot of knobs and some small nesting bowls. The bowls are meant to be used as prep containers. I'm looking forward to having fun with glazes on these.
Some mugs for a commission and more honey jars. Once pieces are well on their way to being dry and no longer need covering to make sure they dry evenly I take them out to the shelves by the kiln.
