Have you ever tried making really tiny lidded pots? It ain’t easy. I remember when I was in high school, seeing a Ceramics Monthly magazine with an article about a woman who made teeny, tiny little pots for doll houses. I couldn’t believe anyone could work that small, I still can’t. The images of those pots just stick in my mind. Well these pots of mine are not that small, but are tiny… approximately 2.5″.
You would think, the smaller the pot, the easier it would be to make, and it should probably be very inexpensive. I have been making these tiny keepsakes the past few months and have realized the effort and loss factor in trimming a pot and lid that is less than a 1/4 lb is very time-consuming!
These little cuties are named Petite Keepsakes and are listed on my urns page of my website. (I hope to get these new photos on the website soon). These are made with the intention of holding a precious memory, like a piece of jewelry, a poem, a love note, or storing a tiny bit of ashes from a loved one who has passed on.
