The potter who made this brown glazed jar used ash from Mount St. Helen's, the volcano that blew its top in Washington state on May 18, 1980 spewing out hundreds of thousands of tons of ash



Mt Saint Helens Ash Pottery Bottle Cork Top  with newspaper
. Potters have made creative glazes with the ash ever since, including the one on this small jar in speckled brown with dark brown top and bottom rims. The interior is fully glazed so it can hold things wet or dry. The unglazed bottom shows the rough cream colored clay used and has an incised signature in script: "B. Bodine Mt. St. Helens 1980" (photograph #4). The jar measures 2 3/8 inches tall, without the fat cork that is its lid and the base diameter is 2 1/8 inches. It's in great condition, waiting to be added to a pottery collection or perched on a kitchen shelf, holding herbs.
