"Spoon, Earthenware Jar, and Wineglass"
Oil on panel, 5 x 6 inches (12 x 15 cm)

Like many of the props I use in my still lifes, I purchased the small jar shown here at a yard sale. From a painterly perspective, it's most interesting feature is the fact the only the upper part of it is glazed, the lower part is plain earthenware. I positioned it so the main highlight would be right on the line, covering both the glazed and unglazed parts.
