This is a brand new texture of machine embroidered mackerel swiming across the jug. There is one on each side of the jug. The machine embroidered fish were cast in plaster and porcelain was press moulded and then formed to create the jug. Once it was biscuit fired I painted cobalt over the stitching and fired it with the glaze which is inside the jug and on the handle. There are three sprigged buttons on the base. The jug is 7.5cm tall and the base 8cm wide. Dishwasher safe with care.
