This jug has embroidered scissors, a pin cushion, needles and thread, buttons and a tape measure scattered across the surface. The taller proportions make it perfect for use as a vase as well as a jug. I embroidered the sewing items and then cast the textile in plaster. From this I could press porcelain into the plaster and construct the jug in sections. There are three sprigged porcelain buttons on the base. The interior and handle are glazed with a transparent glaze and the exterior is unglazed with cobalt painted over the embroidery (a long and painstaking process!!). The jug is 13.5cm tall and has a base of 8cm wide. Dishwasher safe.
