  • Product Details

    A round bellied, earthenware jug decorated with a glossy, iridescent green and honey slip. Richly coloured with a generous form, Douglas’ jug makes for a striking piece that can be used as a serving vessel or as a decorative centrepiece.

    Taking inspiration from medieval pottery, Douglas applies traditional methods such as using the potter’s wheel and a wood fired kiln to create pieces celebrating British ceramic traditions.

    Each one of Douglas’ jugs are thrown on the wheel and decorated with slip – a coloured liquid clay, before being placed in a wood fired kiln in a complex, time consuming firing process. Within the kiln, the piece is transformed by the flames, which create a variation of tone and colour across the vessel's surface.

    About Douglas Fitch

    Devon slipware potter Douglas Fitch has been making pots for most of his life, working from a workshop deep in the Devonshire countryside and drawing inspiration from the surrounding natural environment. Douglas uses as many locally found materials as possible – his earthenwares are made from a blend of clay from Devon, dug from rich seams that have been exploited by potters for centuries.
