We have a lot of Joe's pottery and use it often.  For some reason we have not used this piece and thought someone might enjoy at an affordable price.  Here are a couple links to his history and work Joe Bruhin:  Gifts from the Temple

so, the price is $10 plus shipping...not sure what that would be yet but might be an equal amount.

It stands 6.5 inches tall and holds just under a quart of liquid.

If you want to speak for this post here or in a PM.  We don't have a way to take payments through PayPal yet but can accept a money order or check through the mail.

only shipping withing the states.

Looks like a great vessel for small batch of sauerkraut or other fermenting.

it is wonderful work, yes Pearl!

Wayne, I think it would be good for that...or a small cookie jar, small odds and ends...maybe nuts? It is just under a quart in volume.

I'll hope he won't see the price I've set for it here...we did a trade back when I was weaving and Steve was still doing woodworking.  This price is no where near the actual sale price.

WOW. Your links to his website weren't working for me (they said "blocked"), but I found his work on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoeBruhinCeramics.

The average price per piece is $250! Here's a quote from his page:

In 1986 I established Fox Mountain Pottery and have been earning my livelihood with wood fired pottery ever since. When in the studio and working my primary concern and focus is BEAUTY. I don’t believe there is any one set formula for beauty, but for me being a potter, it seems to require a natural setting, a spiritual practice, a sincerity and yearning, a working with spontaneity and a kiln fueled with wood. Presently I use two wood kilns for expression to bring my efforts to fruition. In 2005 with the assistance of Canadian potter Lee Clark I built a new kiln (see kiln) in order to deliver my vision. This kiln is called an Anagama, which translates to cave or hole kiln, it is half buried underground and measures 40 feet long. It requires ten days of constant attending and ten cords of split pine to achieve the results I seek and to complete one firing. The works from this kiln have a natural glaze, I do not apply glaze to the pots. The color and texture is caused by the climate, age and type of wood being used, atmospheric conditions inside the kiln caused by my intuition and experience in firing the kiln, placement of the works, wood ash from the burning fuel melting into the clay, fire flashing the work and coals being maintained on the pots themselves. The blending of these variables results in endless variety of effects. There can be great risks in wood firing; many elements are at play for success, but the rewards can be deeply satisfying as well. It is challenging and demanding emotionally and physically to control this process. What I find most difficult is to maintain 100% concentration 100% for a ten day firing. By being in harmony with the elements and forces of nature the work becomes a sacrificial offering surrendered to the flames and reborn, it aspires towards the ideal of timeless beauty. In the final analysis, as they say “everything that you are is embodied in the result”, the essence of the person emerges in the effort. For me firing a wood kiln is a meditation, I must focus, concentrate and listen deeply, then I can be in tune. . . the kiln will tell you everything that is needed for success. My goal and ideal is to make objects of beauty that have a transcending quality which can possibly inspire another human being, bring a little joy or add a positive presence to one’s living environment. For me, working with clay and being a fire artist is a vehicle for spiritual growth. One can say that my pots are offerings or prayers and my kiln the temple to manifest them. My work has been recognized through awards, museum exhibitions, collections, publications and film. Spring of 2007 I was honored to have my first one person exhibition at the museum level at the Arkansas Art Center. I’m grateful for the ever-growing recognition I receive, but what is most gratifying is when my efforts to manifest beauty touches the heart of another human being.

Thanks Nicole, I see that the first link still works and that I messed up the second link when I posted...I deleted it.

This pot is one of his earlier pieces...he's an amazing potter.  

We always enjoyed trading with other craftspeople at shows and ended up with things that we never would have considered spending money on otherwise.

Okay, Judith, I've waited enough time to allow someone else to take you up on this terrific opportunity.  Mark that vessel mine, please.

PS:  I see the other pottery offer thread has been locked down, so I will express my joy here about the bowls Judith sent me.  Wow!  They are even more beautiful and impressive in person.  I can't wait to present them to daughter.  Yay!

Consider it yours Ruth I saw your PM and will get back with you...might not get anything mailed until early next week at the rate I'm going.

So glad you are happy with the bowls!

We'll let Pearl change the title to 'sold' and  lock this thread now.....

YAY! honored to do so!
I tried to think of anything I could use that jar for, but failed, beautiful, just didn't fit my current reality. Glad it will be loved :)
Thank you both for keeping the flea market area going! I look forward to more cleaning out :) Maybe one of these days I'll do some cleaning out too.
Changing the tile and locking the thread.
:D
 
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
