Handmade by me in Tallinn. The first Seagull Jug was made back in London in 2014, since then each year its design slightly changes; with handle or not, tall or wide, with or without spikes etc. This particular jug has been slip-casted using one of the original small Seagull Jugs I made on the potter's wheel back in Malta.
Quite often I get asked what is the purpose of the jug and how one can use it. It's basically a pourer either for cream or milk, or maybe some maple syrup for waffles or pancakes. I also use it as a stationary for pens and brushes and sometimes as a planter or vase.
Each jug is an individually handcrafted work, there may be slight variations in shape and colour between pieces. Some of the jugs have swirls of darker colour caused by the making process, please see pictures. The inside is glazed; the outer surface is untreated. By leaving the outer surface untreated I get a chance to finely sand each piece. Sanded porcelain is very soft and pleasant.
