Blackbird jug


This is a porcelain jug with an embroidered effect blackbird on one side and a clutch of three speckled eggs on the other. I embroidered the bird and eggs and then cast the stitched material in plaster. From this I could press porcelain into the plaster and construct the jug in sections. Once the jug was biscuit fired and glazed inside and and on the handle, I over-painted the stitching with a very fine brush, with cobalt to give a beautiful rich blue finish.  There are three sprigged porcelain buttons on the base.  The small jug is 7.5cm tall and the base is 8cm wide.  The jug is dishwasher safe.
