Bellied Calendula Jug I
Fitch & McAndrew
Bellied Calendula Jug I by Scotland-based slipware potter Douglas Fitch, of Fitch & McAndrew. Drawing inspiration from Medieval making methods, this decorative yet durable piece derives its shape from archaeological artefacts and pottery sherds. Fitch & McAndrew choose to work with a narrow pallet of materials, using only those that would have been available to Medieval potters. Thanks to their local geology, similar materials are readily available today, enabling the makers to emulate centuries old pottery traditions. Constantly inspired by flowers growing in the couple’s garden, Douglas has adorned this piece with a one-off floral detail. The jug is watertight, making it perfect for displaying flowers.
