 Here are the templates for the pot I've been working on today. Sometimes the drawings on my pots are quite naturalistic. But for this I wanted a simple shape in keeping with the North Devon tradition. I am always fascinated by the templates as there is something very pleasing about such simple shapes. Often the templates end up in the bin as they are cut from very thin paper.
Looking at the jug now it looks very straight forward but it took me all day to scrape away the background. There is another jug waiting to be done in the damp cupboard. That will be tomorrow's task.
These jugs have been in the back of my mind since my trip to the Burton Museum in Bideford and even though I don't think I will pursue the idea I had to get it out of my system.
