Ceramic vessels and lids

Put a lid on it –  ceramic boxes, jubako, jars and pots 

Lidded ceramic vessels come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. Most are functional in nature and a selection of trinket/jewelry boxes, jars, censers, cigarette boxes, jubako boxes, covered pots and bowls are represented below.

The Japanese jubako boxes displayed are a practical means to stack the bento trays making them more compact and keeping the food warm. The correct term for the porcelain boxes is actually Danjo, while Jubako refers to the lacquered trays. Traditionally the 4 tiered boxes are filled with small entree sized dishes for New Years Eve and are then called osechi ryori (New Year’s cuisine). The are just as popular now for the storage of small objects.

Melanie Ferguson Ceramics – Lidded vessel from her Naked Raku series.

“Coastal stones rolling ashore, crashing waves, eroding hillsides, the swirling ripple on water’s surface, and the vibrant colors and rhythmic patterns of the ocean’s flora and fauna provides me with endless intrigue and inspiration. My hand-build earthen and stoneware vessels are influenced by this symbolic gesture of how energy moves in and around organic objects to reshape their form, bounce light and crush the old to cast anew.”
