Recent Firing of Philip Leach pottery….

I’ve just fired the jugs I made for A New England Cargo but was unable to put them in the Bideford Kiln because so many other pots arrived .  The forms of the squat jug  without a pouring lip comes straight from New England I think and I took the decoration too. A sturdy form. The poringers with over-fired handles I like because they are great in the hand. There is a natural scooping action which I imagine they were used for.
