Studio Pottery Jug with Tenmoku Glaze
There are no markings on this studio pottery jug; thus making it impossible to either assign a maker to it, or to determine when it was made. I do, however, suspect that it was made in the past 40 years.
The top half of the jug, including the handle, has a luscious tenmoku glaze applied to it. Thew lower half has a different yellowy brown glaze applied in part, with the bare body of the clay visible in sections. The flask form of the jug means that it is a very stable piece, not at risk of toppling over. The join where the bottom of the handle meets the body of the jug is particularly pleasing.
