I love this fantastic pot! It's a 14th Century mask(face) jug and gives me ideas of the cross-over i could achieve between these medieval pots and the face jugs of my previous post. The whole anthropomorphic thing going on... add to the mix the Bellarmine or Bartman and i'm in pottery heaven. One day it'll all make sense to me, hopefully. I dream of big earthenware Bellarmines covered in sgrafitto, like one big tattooed sailor! Or a slipware face, of harvest jug proportions, with words and pictures telling a story like some full-face tattooed gang member. Then i worry that it's not the done thing, not pure enough, not 'slipware'. As i know from the rest of my art though, the knack is to just start making some of these things and the right path will soon open up. I do have to stop worrying about what's 'right' though.
