Shino Jug by ceramics artist Matthew Foster. Inspired by pattern and referencing Mingei and Leach Pottery traditions, this piece forms part of a series of new work - created exclusively for The New Craftsmen - which explores a wide range of practises. Matthew has examined styles he loves, as well as those he dislikes, in order to question, learn and inform his pieces. The finished jug communicates these discoveries. Covered in a glossy shino glaze, a method of glazing which originated in 16th century Japan and purposefully recreated here to enhance the jug’s unique motif. The motif is applied using a roller tool notched with a pattern of Matthew’s own design.
