This diminitive cousin of the full sized face jug. Face jugs originally were made during the 19th Century by southern potters. It is thought that their scary appearance would keep children from drinking the contents. This little guy might not be too scary, but his birth involved a 24 hour firing in a wood kiln that reached a temperature of 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. Not sure why you would want to, but he can be put in a dishwasher or microwave. More than likely he'll house a flower or just stare at you sans the blossom.

  • All pots are high fired (2,400F) stoneware or porcelain. They are wood fired in a wood burning kiln for over 24 hours. As the flame crosses the pots, iron is drawn to the surface so the flames 'draw' permanent flashing marks on the pot, and the ash melts to form a glaze. All work is food safe, and dishwasher and microwave safe.
