Thrown from gently flecked speckled clay before being covered in a glaze I've settled on calling Sea Foam: this jug's glaze has been applied using a pouring method rather than a dipping method which allows for natural colour-change and difference in crystal formation upon the surface of the pot. The colour of the glaze traverses a whole range of blues, whites and speckles of green, breaking a tiny bit tan on the rim and on the edge of the handles, where the lines are a little sharper. I love these jugs, they're the perfect size for a bunch of wildflowers, a whole pint of milk, or whatever else your heart desires. A super special one-off that shows the flexibility and diversity of a single glaze, and utilises sharp edges in combination with smooth surfaces to maximum effect.
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.

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.
