A large terracotta jug, for pouring drinks, or for holding a bunch of handpicked flowers. The natural qualities of this clay will keep your water (or sangria?!) refreshingly cool if you pop it in the fridge for a while.
Hand-thrown in terracotta clay in Belfast, Helen has chosen a beautiful, smooth, turquoise glaze that contrasts with the exposed dark clay perfectly. Each piece is marked on the base with the maker's mark and the lines and curves are evidence that each piece is made by hand.
Dimensions and Care:
This jug measures approx. 17cm tall and 11.5cm in diameter and holds 800ml. This piece is safe to use in the oven and dishwasher but not recommended for the microwave as the terracotta clay heats up very quickly.

Helen Faulkner produces pottery from clay derived from plentiful minerals occurring in the earth, as well as glazes that Helen makes herself, with the intention for her ceramics to last for years to come. In its raw state, the clay can be recycled many times before being fired in her well insulated, therefore very efficient kiln. Ceramics require a lot of care in terms of packaging but Helen, like many of our other ceramicists, uses recyclable or repurposed materials to protect the work in transit. Lastly, Helen’s Belfast studio is within walking distance of her home which allows for a carbon free journey to and from work!
