Soon, old Winter's effect will fall upon the land leaving a barren and desolate landscape. This old, earthy skull jug is just a reminder that nothing is permanent.
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I still love spooky stories and, "things that go bump in the night". For me, nothing is more fun to make than a skull , creature or goblin.
This jug was sculpted mostly by pushing the clay out from the inside. The glazes and underglazes came out especially nice. The inside is glazed with a lead free stoneware glaze and is suitable for any liquid you would care to put in it. An antique hand-blown glass marble is the eye.
