Skull cookie jars are handmade exclusively by Kelly Morse of the Skellramics studios.

These 14″ tall large, bold, skull shaped, 2 piece ceramic cookie jars are hand-glazed inside and out. They are very unique and highly detailed, collectible ceramic art pieces, glazed in a wide variety of brilliant colors in Kelly’s recognizable style. Every design element is individually painted on the greenware piece by hand in several layers of under-glaze, each applied one layer at a time by brush. Glazes used are all food safe for hot or cold food. These carefully detailed one of a kind specialty skulls take more than a month to complete from start to finish. The cookie jars go through two to 3 kiln firings, with more glazes being applied before each firing. This process finishes, adorns and defines the detailing of the piece even further. The final kiln firing makes the magic in the details spring to life. It’s always exciting to open the kiln, to see what surprises may have occurred during the time in the kiln, that’s when the finished creation sparkles and shines showing all it’s true colors.

These cookie jars are perfect for storing your favorite treats, snacks or cookies,  can also be used jack o’ lantern style by placing a candle or small light inside the base of the skull. This causes the face to light up in a beautifully erie fashion. A Halloween novelty this is not, but it can lend an artful and commanding presence to any Halloween display. Dia De Los Muertos and Tibetan Buddhist meditational art lend inspiration to the detailed motif in this one of a kind skull creation. Perfect as an altar or center piece for a variety of celebratory purposes, lovely to look at and useful too! The interior storage space is perfect for storing pirate treasures or special keepsakes.
