hand thrown on the wheel, this water jug has been glazed in a cool pale grey glaze. The water jug has been glazed in a stoneware mid fire glaze. As the clay remains porous it should not be used for storage of water; water poured into this jug remains amazingly cool in temperature due to the clay porosity! i am super pleased with this glaze as the oxide dispersion has turned out absolutely stunning. Each product is unique and original. The jug and the glaze has been handmade meaning that there will be no other like it! needless to say it is food safe!
