We have a jug in our house that gets used for everything. It's the gravy jug, the custard jug and the one for mixing wet ingredients while cooking.
These two jugs have been based on that one, the dimensions and shape almost identical. They hold around one pint of liquid and pour really well. To make them really durable I've rolled the rim to reduce the chance of chipping. The handles are also made fairly chunky in case they get knocked.
They could also be used as a little vase, or maybe as a sink tidy for keeping sponges or brushes in.
- 13 cm diameter
- 12 cm heigh
- Capacity - roughly one pint
The jugs are made in the potters wheel from a light stoneware clay. After weighing the clay, I spend a few minutes kneading it to remove any air bubbles, and even out the consistency. The lump is thrown on the wheel and centered using the coning method. Taking time to ensure it's centered well makes pulling the walls a lot easier. Once the walls have been pulled to a set height, I thin out the top section of wall a little. This portion is then folded over while the wheel is turning to create the rolled rim. It's a little tricky until you get used to it.
