Handled Jug

Adam Frew

Handled Jug - Irish Design Shop data-zoom=


A colourful alternative to the breakfast table milk jug. Each handmade porcelain jug varies in design, with different patterns of navy blue blocked brush strokes and vivid ultramarine lines, all layered with a glossy glaze. In contrast to the white porcelain, each has an unglazed orange or blue handle to neatly lift and pour.

Adam Frew is a potter based in rural Northern Ireland, creating clean and simple forms in porcelain. He enjoys the spontaneity of throwing, the speed of production and mark making. Adam often includes stark contrasts to the clean white porcelain with sharp lines, playful scribbles, brush marks, and lots of colour -making each hand made piece unique.

Dimensions and Care:

Each jug measures approx 7cm in height and 7cm across the widest point. As each is hand made, the dimensions may vary slightly. Sold individually.

We would recommend handwashing this item.

Sustainability:

Adam undertakes each aspect of production himself, under the one roof!  From making his own glazes, constructing the vessels and firing them. He recycles all of his unfired clay, and where possible biodegradable packaging is used to protect the finished porcelain pieces. As Adam works from his home in Northern Ireland, it's a short walk to the studio!
