This jar was originally made for a good friend of mine, John Thompson, who is a Professor at Syracuse University. He is a marvelous illustrator and, while doing research for a book he was about to illustrate, he asked me about the pots for the Dead Sea Scrolls. As luck would have it, I had just seen the exhibition touring the U.S and had been astonished how very minimal -- undecorated and slender -- but apparently wood-fired the pots appeared. I could not say with certainty from the short time I had to view them but they seemed to have been created by potters who had priorities similar to my own -- athletic shape, well balanced and well proportioned. I felt an instant affinity and when John Thompson asked my help to create one for him to use as inspiration while drawing, I jumped at the opportunity. As a result there is a full line of pots (small, medium, tall and tallest) and an exquisite childrens book telling the wondrous story of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. This will ship along with pot if still available.
