Byron Temple, #41 Jar with Loop, 1996, glazed wood fired stoneware, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Thomas Y.C. Chock, 1997.8A-B
#41 Jar with Loop was thrown in Byron Temple's signature cylindrical shape. The simple form disguises the fact that it is one of the most difficult to make because of the skill needed to ensure that the walls are of even thickness and height. He was drawn to the cylinder because it is a multipurposed vessel and has the capacity to hold large amounts.
