This is an early creamware jug that I was given. She is very delicate and has a very fine curvey body. I was so impressed with her beautiful figure that I thought I would try to emulate her charming form.
Please try to remind me not to be seduced by the charms of a creamware jug again. I am thinking why was I- a slipware potter -taken in by her grace and ease. (She weighs almost nothing).
Here are more pots trying to emulate the slender cream jug! Oh well-it's all a bit of a challenge.
Talking of challenges-I'm afraid nobody was really on the right track in the competition. But thank you for your guesses. My boys got quite excited when I said that I was doing a competition and immediately asked what the prize was and I am afraid to say they were not impressed with the answer. As soon as they come through the kiln I will post a picture and it will become very clear!! (Mainly because I have actually written what they are on them!!!!)
Jim Malone - I love listening to potters articulating their motivations for making the work they make. This is a favorite interview/film made by Goldmark Gallery of Jim...
