My husband had some new pottery fired in our friend's wood kiln last week. Our friend Don had some pieces in the firing as well. When we opened the kiln a few days later, amidst all of the beautiful pottery sat this little jar of Don's. I loved the shape of the jar, and the colors of the raw clay next to the green glaze on the top.

I knew right away I wanted to paint it. One of the benefits of hanging around with mud-slinging pyromaniacs (aka potters) is first dibs (usually, haha.) Since Don was out of town that day, everyone thought it would be ok if I took the jar home to paint. Hope you don't mind, Don. I'll give it back when you get home, I promise! ;-)
