Thrown from Oxidising St Thomas clay before being covered in a glaze I've settled on calling Burnt Umber, this tall jug is perfect for a bunch of wildflowers, a whole pint of milk, or whatever else your heart desires.
I've spent around 4 months developing this glaze, which has an amazing colour-changing capactiy. In bright sunshine it appears golden orange-rust, breaking red on the edges, and in shadow, it scales the green to yellow spectrum. I've taken pictures of it in both lights so you can see the difference.
The bottom of the jug is simply turned, and stamped with my maker's mark.
With a traditional 'pulled' handle, and a tiny little spout, it'd make a lovely housewarming or birthday gift.

*please be aware this is a hand-thrown piece, and as such, small differences between images and jug are to be expected.
Tall Jug in Burnt Umber
Although *theoretically* dishwasher safe, to prolong the lifespan of this jug, I'd suggest hand-washing with warm soapy water. If any staining occurs, due to - say - contact with grubby flowers, the stain can be removed using bicarbonate of soda and warm water.
