Ben Fiess – Large Jar in Speckled Surf

Yeah. A jar. Thing is, a jar is only a bit of a shrug until you start filling it with things that you love. Once a jar becomes home to a regular delight (like nettles or herbs) it takes on the aura a trusted friend who keeps your goods good—while looking quite good, in this case.

This handsome piece was handcrafted in Minnesota by Ben Fiess and has an odd but attractive closure system that involves cork plugs and a rubber band. Opening and closing this clearly calls for a bit of ritual, and if whatever you put inside is part of a ritual of its own, you can combine two rituals into one mega-ritual which will undoubtedly bring balance to your life. Leif has it.

More looks after the jump…
