Jugs are one of my favourite forms to make - each one can be different, with its own attitude, proportions, and colour. They make wonderful gifts, acting as both functional pouring vessels, and a statement vase when filled with flowers. I recommend filling this glassy green, brown ,and blue jug with fresh milk, warm mulled wine, or a fruity sangria. I love the attitude in this one’s spout - it stands so proud!
4” wide (not including handle) x 7” high
High Iron Stoneware.
59 hour anagama firing, reduction cooled.

This piece was fired in a wood-burning kiln, using no electricity or gas. The interior of all my pieces are coated with a food safe glaze, while the outsides are left to be “self-glazed” by the ash, the flame, and the heat of the wood firing process. Their surfaces show dynamic stories that have been carved by hand, and then enhanced by the mark of the fire. The flame path licks and draws, rolls and wraps. Each piece highlights the firing’s history and displays the variation within each kiln load. Like people, no two pieces are ever the same.
