Basically I have two kinds of jars. The larger ones with my unique double handles can be used to store anything – sugar, oatmeal, rice….. The smaller one with a single handle, paired with a pitcher, becomes a creamer/sugar set. But they are wonderful alone to store cotton balls, jewelry or keys. Whatever you want……. There are many examples of the sizes, shapes and glazes on this page – but do not feel limited by what you see here.
