For some random reason I decided to make a useless jug.
I wanted it to be a challenge to pick up due to a strangely shaped handle, and just in case someone fancied using it as a jug or a vase, I put holes all the way down the back to make it totally leak if water was added.
Why? No idea. Just a strange idea.
Anyway… I hand build it using rolled out slabs of clay.
I then painted it in a few coats of different coloured slips.
Can’t even remember what colours I used as I was just grabbing anything from the cupboard, so it will be a nice (or not) surprise when it comes out of the kiln.
I decided to do some random designs on it too with my Sgraffito carving tool. I marked off some sections to begin…
… then lightly marked a pattern so I could go back and carve it properly once done.
