Aqua stoneware ceramic lidded jar with telephone cord handle


Ask a question

This stoneware ceramic jar was wheel thrown on a potter's wheel. I call the coiled handle my "old-school telephone cord" handle.... my young students always look at me like I'm crazy when I call it that! The piece is glazed and fired in my gas-fueled reduction kiln to over 2300 degrees fahrenheit. The orange stripe at the bottom of the lid is produced by soda ash "flashing" onto the bare clay body in the firing. I love the contrast of the orange against aqua on this piece!

Size is 4.5" x 4.5" x 4.5"

Food safe for non-acidic items. Can be washed in the dishwasher as well, but I usually recommend hand washing.

Shipping & Policies

Payment Methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards


I gladly accept payment via PayPal, money order, or check. On personal checks, my policy is to wait until the check clears before shipping the item to you. Thanks for understanding.

Shipping from United States

I generally ship the same day I receive payment, and for most items I use Fed Ex Ground, but I will ship the fastest way possible for the amount of money you have paid. I often double box and and always thoroughly pack items I am shipping. Whenever possible, I try to reuse packing materials so please be understanding of multiple types of padding (i.e. bubble wrap, foam, news paper, shredded paper, etc.)

On international orders, I will likely use USPS for international shipping. I try very hard to accurately estimate the shipping costs. However, if I have overestimated significantly, I will refund the difference to you.


As mentioned above, customer satisfaction is very important to me. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please let me know within one week of receiving the item and I will either refund your purchase, replace the item or remake it (this may take some time due to firing schedules).

While I make every effort to portray the true color of my work through the photography process, every computer monitor has its own color nuances. The glazes themselves are complex surfaces often with many subtle variations. If the color of the piece is extremely important for you, please contact me for further descriptions. If you have access to a local hardware store with paint color samples such as Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore, we can very accurately compare colors though their free in-store samples.


I gladly accept custom orders with a 50% deposit required up front. However, variations in glazes are sometimes unpredictable, so like any handmade product no two are exactly alike.

I will sell wholesale on some items, so please contact me via e-mail if you are interested. I rarely work on consignment.
