Once used to hold stockpiles of grain, this capacious terracotta jar is distinguished by the energetic incised pattern covering its exterior. Using a simple forked tool, the potter layered the vessel with dense etchings to enliven the simply shaped vessel with visual rhythm and all-over texture. The jar was then cloaked in a wash of dark glaze, pooling and gathering in the incised crevices to accentuate the rhythmic pattern. An exposed lip adds further contrast and lends the vessel rustic charm. Tucked alongside a hearth or filled with lush foliage in the garden, this large grain jar is a wonderful addition to any space.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
