This form is thrown in two parts on the wheel before being assembled, with a generous pouring spout added. A handle is pulled from the body of the jug to complete it. Painted in layers of black slip, the piece is then fired and finally coated in a glassy green glaze, giving depth of colour to the dark surface. Lovely for filling with water for the table, or as a vessel for cut flowers.
Thrown to roughly the same proportions, the jugs are then sometimes embellished with slip detailing, making each individual. If you would like to buy multiple with the same or no slip details, please email me to enquire.
