Ginger Jars were originally used by the Chinese culture to carry salt, spices and oils and some were designated as gifts for the Emperor or given as gifts to foreign diplomats. Today, they are used as statement accessory pieces and some are wired to become graceful lamps. Unlike its Asian counterpart, this exquisite ginger jar was beautifully and flawlessly handcrafted in Arizona. The difficult technique of creating incised patterns in the clay and interesting variations in its glaze make it one of a kind. This piece was so unique it caught the sharp eye of an editor from one of our premier home decorating magazines and was featured in a recent issue. Come see and experience it at our showroom, you will be amazed!
