Symy Ong hand-thrown table jug
A curvaceous table jug, hand-thrown and assembled for us in stoneware by Jynsym Ong, a mile or so from the Objects of Use store. With a lively flecked blue-white glaze, which leans towards green in hotter parts of the kiln. Holds around two pints. Ong, who apprenticed for a year with a Japanese wood-fired pottery, has since set up studio in Oxford, making stoneware pieces which are fired in a gas kiln. Height 17cm, diameter 12.5cm, approximately, holds around 1l.
