This functional porcelain jug has an embroidered textile texture showing key elements of the willow pattern story. I machine embroidered the willow tree, birds and orange tree, made a plaster cast of them and used this to pressmould and handbuild the jug. Once the jug was bisque fired, I overpainted the stitches with cobalt and fired again to give a rich blue. The interior and handle have a transparent glaze and the exterior is matt. There are three sprigged buttons on the base.
16 × 10.5 cm
Hand wash or dishwasher safe with care.
I have been developing ideas of storytelling within the motifs that I use and the willow pattern has to be one of the most iconic and beautiful stories told across a piece of ceramics.

I make a range of simple shaped but highly textured, porcelain that combine my love of clay and textiles with wit and curiosity. They involve many processes from stitching patchwork, embroidering and upholstering textiles, making plaster casts of the textures and designing paper pattern templates to construct textured porcelain slabs into vessels designed to be used.
