Pin Cushion Jars
The idea for these tall jars was sitting in my head and I decided to make them this evening. I originally intended them both to be pin cushion jars.
Both pieces are triangular in shape. The second one was the original pin cushion idea which I sketched in my journal. The wire was supposed to come out of the top and the sides.
As I was making the jars I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to have rough wires sticking out of the top and sides, so I added the little heads at the end.
I didn't put any wires coming out the sides of the lid either. I wonder if I should add those now? Having the pin cushions with the heads isn't the same effect as my drawing. I might have to make another one with spikes of clay sticking out instead of wire. Oh I just had another idea, I'll have to work on that.
Meanwhile I changed the tile pattern for the entry to 18 inch tile instead of 12 inch tile which makes it less busy. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
