Qumran Inspired Jar In Progress
I am fascinated by the Qumran Jars in which the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. The original jars are huge - roughly a foot in diameter and two feet tall. Originally, I thought the jars were coil built, but after seeing a number of google images, I think they were thrown. I can't throw for beans, so I'm coil building my jars.
This is the fifth jar, and I've got it about halfway built. As you can see, I'm getting better at making the inside smooth.
