These landscape crocks are fired upside down in the kiln to give the glazes a chance to run, which actually creates the picture. The effect is achieved by applying different thicknesses and layers of glaze to the piece. These variations are responsible for what colors result and how much the glaze moves.
Each crock is a unique work of art which never can be reproduced. Similar scenes can be produced but they would never be exactly the same.
The crocks shown are between five and six inches high. They could be used for storing kitchen utensils, art brushes, pencils, candy, etc., or just displayed as an art piece!
