Face Jug

For two years in a row I was called upon to teach a Face Jug lesson to my fellow at teacher. I found this a very different experience than teaching middle or high school students this same lesson. The most notable was that the classroom was very quite and the (adult) students were very focused.

Anyways, here are the results of my instructional pieces from each session. They each took about 6 hours to create before the firing and glazing process. 100_0427

The first piece I was quite pleased with. I believe I captured the spirit of the Face Jug better than the following years’ jug. The second one I think I put too much into it. It lacks the simplicity I prefer in my pottery.

I have seen face jugs in numerous shops in and around Seagrove, NC. Some are very subtle and some are crazy and whimsical. They are all impressive and well crafted.
