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. This particular jug got super toasty hot in the kiln and as such, phase separation of the glaze, breaking a warm reddish brown, can be seen on the bottom half of the piece. 'Throwing lines' from my fingers can also be seen here, where the glaze turns particularly glassy. A super special one-off. 


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. 


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. 




20cm x 6cm at rim (roughly!)


*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 No.2

  • 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.
