Fluted Jar with Lid
This lidded jar by Warren MacKenzie has a surface covered with vertical fluted areas about one inch wide. Fired separately, the lid has the same fluted sides as the jar. It has a yellow hue, is scattered with brown spots, and has brown streaks appearing along the edges of the fluted areas. The jar’s yellowish color is the result of pouring a matte brown glaze over a matte grey glaze.
Glazed stoneware: Brown matte glaze over grey matte glaze
