Traditional, rustic and inspired by Early American pottery. This jug is handy to use for drinking water and is also decorative in the home and yard.
The bottle was made from a hand made batch of Paul Soldner clay body, with sawdust added. (which burns out during the firing.) It's was thrown on the potters wheel and wood fired in reduction. I textured the pot using a piece of tree bark which created horizontal, linear marks all around. Then, added the handle.
The wood firing lasted several days and reached temperatures as high as 2400'F using local wood as fuel. The surface of the jug is a speckled, sandy, reddish brown. There is a glassy, gray-black oval area where the wood ash melted. Otherwise, the jug has warm earth tones, chestnut brown, organic coloring. The inside is lined with satin black glaze.
This jug will hold about 2 quarts.
The form is both functional, decorative, and safe for drinking liquids from. Just be careful it does not freeze outdoors with water inside.
