This jug is made of white earthenware clay and thrown by hand on the wheel. It is then glazed in a luscious turquoise over a golden brown glaze that breaks through to create an interesting mottle effect. It holds about half a pint so would be perfect to go with your tea or coffee.
We are a husband and wife team, John and Gemma Swan, and make all our pottery in beautiful and inspiring Cornwall, towards Lands End. We use white earthenware clay and John throws most of our pottery on the wheel. Our distinctiveness comes in the vibrant colours we glaze the pottery with – turquoise, vibrant green and an orangey red. All with a breakthrough of a golden brown, which harks back to Cornish pottery of the past. Our range of pottery is mostly functional with a few decorative items as well. We like to make pottery that is used, cherished and enjoyed.
