Jars

For historic forms, I was most interested in Canopic Jars, but others had already posted photos so I kept looking and I found out about Hunping or Spirit Jars. I really enjoy the lids on them, they’re so intricate and ridiculous. I wanted to sculpt parts of my lids so these were fun to look at.

For contemporary Jars, I was inspired by these, they remind me of the canopic jars, obviously because of the animal heads, but the texture that was put on them to create a figural form out of a thrown form is very interesting.
