Stoneware pottery jug with hand cut shapes, ideal for all liquids or for arranging flowers!
Hand building process
The jug is made from grey stoneware clay, which dries to an off white. When the clay is “leather hard” the shapes are hand cut with a sharp craft knife and edges refined. The jug has two firings, the first to around 1100 degrees centigrade and the second, to over 1200 degrees. Following the initial firing, a minimum of 3 coats of black satin glaze is added to the inside of the jug and the outside is left “raw” so the beauty of the clay is visible. As the jug is not made using a wheel, the shapes can be irregular – each item is unique! The process takes around 2-3 weeks to complete – this allows for the original rolling out, drying before the first firing, glazing and then final firing and cooling.
The price is for one jug, handmade in my studio in the Surrey Hills
