Rick Wisecarver pottery has an avid following especially among collectors of art pottery, black memorabilia and those who love American Indian art. But when it comes to his cookie jars, Wisecarver's primitive style is very unique. The top and base are left un glazed at the rims to avoid sliding/slipping when put together.
This is normal and not an error in the pottery. Each jar is a true work of art by this artist.Over his lifetime, Rick created anywhere from 100 to 120 different cookie jars, they were all hand-painted and very limited. The ceramic pottery has the normal imperfections associated with their production. VIEW MY LAST TWO PHOTOS FOR OTHER BLACK AMERICANA COOKIE JARS FROM MY COLLECTION.
