Tender’s jug is hand thrown in England from natural red clay dug in England. The jug is not slipped, and is glazed with a translucent blue, which darkens the tone of the clay and gives it a rich chocolate brown. The base is left unslipped and entirely unglazed, to reveal the original character of the mud.
Throwing pots by hand involves drawing the desired form up from a single solid spinning lump of clay. Tender’s Master Potter works the clay directly with his bare hands, so each piece is unique and bears the marks of his fingers and thumbs. The body of the jug tapers gently, and is sized to serve iced tea or cocktails into two cups.
Please bear in mind that this hand-made pottery should be washed by hand, and is not suitable for microwaves, ovens, or dishwashers.
