we make covered jars around an empty toilet tissue roll. three slabs, one long rectangle, two circles. wrap the clay around the
tube (cover it with news paper so you can get to out later and to make it a little thicker) and slip at the "seam". cover the open
top and bottom with the circles slabs. when leather hard cut in two with an x-acto. remove the tube. and... its a covered jar.
put an animal head on the top and it can be a canpoic jar if you need to store guts!!!
