This cookie jar is about 9 inches tall and 5 inches in diameter. It's made from a stoneware clay body called "T2"; a smooth light brown clay (very little grog). The glaze is called "Vagas Red", a comercially-available high fire (cone 10) glaze. The glaze requires reduction during the firing to bring out the red. One side of the pot was properly reduced while the other side was not so the red only appears on one side. I think the variation in color gives it character.
