Flying crane and bamboo jug


Porcelain jug with a machine embroidered effect crane and bamboo.  Cranes are symbolic of happiness and longevity whilst bamboo represents strength and flexibility.  I drew them with the sewing machine and cast the material in plaster, from which I press the porcelain and hand build the jug.  The interior and handle are glazed with a shiny transparent. glaze and the stitching is over-painted with cobalt when it is biscuit fired.  It is then fired again and the stitching becomes a classic rich cobalt blue.
The jug is 13.5cm tall with a base of 9.5cm diameter and is dishwasher safe.
