Thrown on the potter's wheel from Oxidising St Thomas clay before being covered in a glaze I've finally decided to call Buttercup, 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 variation, which has an amazing colour-changing, chameleon-like ability. It moves between colours on the yellow-peach spectrum, with hints of rosy pink where it breaks over the handle. Where it has got slightly hotter on one side in the kiln, the glaze becomes more molten and has broken to reveal a shiny transparent section with slight phase separation. Interesting, and a complete one-off.
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 Buttercup
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.
