With just a few days of throwing left I'm making some kiln fillers and space maximizers. I haven't made salt and pepper shakers seriously for a long time. They were fun. The form developed from a bud vase I've made tons of crossed with a candlestick/goblet stem. Only after I'd made a few did I realize that they bear a resemblance to old southern grave markers.
I'll drill proper holes after I've slipped them.
Tony Clennell wrote a great blog recently about his love for putting handles on everything. I am in complete agreement. I also like to let the seams show as they wrap around a rim.

yes they do- I have seen many grave markers from this area.
Those will make great Salt and Pepa' shakers!
