Pasta jars

Throwing pasta jars on the wheel is haaaard. Spaghetti and other long noodles average around 12 inches these days. That means I have to throw a cylinder a little over 13 inches. I can do it now (Production work has done wonders for my skills) but its hard. Of course, I could try throwing it in three pieces instead of two (two jar pieces and a lid makes three) or maybe I just like the challenge.

Its not as bad as it could have been. Spaghetti used to average around 20 inches. o_O well… actually, that might have been easier, since then they either made pasta bird nests out of them or folded them in half (10 inches!)

Still, I should have some fossil style pasta jars coming out. 🙂
