Fish Jug

Inspired by the Great Pottery Throwdown, I decided to try pottery. It felt like something that might be a direction to take in my work and possibly the sort of thing I might be good at. Well, I wasn’t, really. It was enormously fun to learn though, and I had a very nice time.

I did do the odd piece I was pleased with though, such as this slab-built jug. Unsurprisingly, the bit I did get on with was the bit that involved drawing on things – this was sgraffito with coloured slip rubbed into the lines after firing.
