New Box

I fired a glaze load over the weekend so I thought I'd start off by showing this rectangular box.  This is the first box I've really put some time into and I'm happy to see that these have some potential.

6 1/4 x 5 x 6 1/2"

It's decorated all around on all 6 sides.  This is a time consuming pot to make and then even more time is put in with all the decoration.

I've been thinking for some time about making more 'exhibition' type pots.  Ones that are more showy, more time consuming, collectable, and  more expensive too.  I think this sort of box fits the bill.

I did have a few minor issues on this pot.  One small crack around the place where I attached the flange and the slab for the top.  I also had a small pop out on the lid.  I see where I need to pay particular attention to attaching these seams in the next one I make.

I'm not sure if I'll sell this one since it has those problems. It's always tricky to price a pot that would be quite expensive if it was first quality.  I'll have to think about it I guess.
