Milk Jug - Yellow Butterfly

Ref: 82566


Debbie Joy

The designs were inspired by insects that came into my flat one summer - a reminder of the irrepressible energy and exquisite beauty of nature.

The work is made to retain strong traces of the hand making process: throwing spirals from fingers drawing clay up on the wheel, marks on the base from the wire that cut the pot free of the wheel, and the sloping line of immersion in the glaze bucket.

Thrown in stoneware clay, the range of mugs, bowls, jugs and dishes will enhance the experience of eating and drinking. All are suitable for the dishwasher but best not used in a microwave.

I started learning to throw at the end of the 1980's while I was at university doing a degree in Chinese Studies. This led onto studying Ceramic Design at the Central Academy of Art and Design in Beijing, and many years later, MA Art and Design at the Sir John Cass School of Art at London Metropolitan University.
