Be Sweet! Jam Jars

Be Sweet! Jam Jars
Jake Johnson: Jake’s Clay Art
I saw these condiment jars on Judy Abdelaziz’s blog –  New Day Pottery.  Really great-I love ’em!
So I checked out Jake Johnson’s website to see more of his work – great stuff!


My particular interest in these jars is that I have an idea!

Wendy Watson and Narelle Higgins are two lovely ladies in Murwillumbah that are involved in raising money to help build schools in Tanzania.  They are doing this by making jam and then selling it at the Murwillumbah Market.

 Here the fired bricks have been built into the girls’ loo – the latest building finished.

I thought that I might be able to help out by making some jam jars for them to sell along with the jam.  So I’m in the process of making jam jars.

Here are some photos of my work in progress!

At the end of the day, it’s not only our pots that will last into the future, but also our actions.
