Rosemary Jacks - Fish Jug
Hand thrown earthenware jug, made in Devon.
Dia base: 12.5 cm Dia neck: 6cm Height 16 cm
Working from her studio in the old village bakery, in Musbury, in East Devon, Rosemary makes a selection of wheel thrown, earthenware pottery. Influenced by traditional slipware and the harvest jugs from North Devon, and taking reference from the natural world around her home, her pieces are both fun and functional. Quirky decoration of birds, animal and plant motifs using a variety of techniques, such as sgraffito, paper resist and brush work, cover her boldly thrown pieces. The application of oxides and underglaze colours, under a shiny, clear lead glaze give a subtle earthy quality which would fit both country and contemporary homes and make for an interesting and cheerful additional to any kitchen.
