This is a small hand thrown tyg, a two handled drinking vessel, made in red earthenware clay. The pot is dipped in a green slip before being decorated with trailed slip lines in various colours.
The whole pot is covered in a pale honey glaze and fired in a wood fuelled kiln. Made in response to traditional slipware vessels of the 18th and 19th Century.
Each one is made to order as close to the one pictured here as possible, and measures 10cm high x 17.5cm diameter across the handles.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
