Handmade ceramic pottery jug with soft matt vanilla glaze.
Perfect size for a table water jug or as a flower vase.
My ceramic jugs are made from a toasted buff stoneware clay rolled out flat into slabs. Each jug is cut out by hand and formed into the body of the jug. I leave the seam visible where I join the sides of the jug as part of the design. An oval shape is cut and added for the base and a strip of clay is cut, shaped and added for the handle.
The jugs are high-fired in the kiln to 1000 degrees (the bisque fire) which dries and strengthens the jug sufficiently for it to be glazed. The jugs are dip glazed in a matt vanilla glaze and firing them again to 1250 degrees.
Each ceramic jug is individually crafted so no two are exactly alike.
Handmade in my studio in Emsworth in the south of England.
