car jar!

You will know that I have been working on this car idea for months.
a) I finally figured how exactly I want to make them, step by step and
b) How a person could use them: call it a car jar! Good for coins, sugar, jelly beans, whatever you wanna put in there. It is important to me that they are made (like a bowl or vase) entirely of wheel thrown parts and the finished item is USEFUL--that is how a potter thinks and
c) I am musing over how to add spout and handle to make some into teapots too and
d) they take an impossibly long time to make and I am sorry, they will be expensive but finally
e) this one, just outta the kiln, is the best so far and I am terribly pleased with it :)
