Each major jug numbered,
dated and signed by the artist.


Title: "Verne Spacey "
At least 3 robots in one !!!

Comment:: This ol' robot jug has lots of detail, from the bolts and rivets, to the lid that would be envied by Tesla himself. He has three faces but only four eyes. He kinda reminds me of a Jules Vern diving bell (20,000 Leagues Under The Sea) . He also has that Buck Rogers funky robot spacey look. I'll call him VerneSpacey (not to be confused with Kevin Spacey. Though Kevin is probably just as odd).

This jug came out great.
He was all hand-thrown and sculpted. Then he was glazed with a metallic, grungy, bronze/black lava glaze that came out especially nice.There are lots of metallic flashed areas. He was high-fired. Then he was refired with metallic lusters to accentuate the old space look. The inside is glazed with a lead-free, food safe glaze. The only parts that aren't clay are a hand blown glass egg and three melted marbles.

I spent the last 7 years doing junk sculpture so this guy is kind of a natural extension of that process except he is made of clay pieces instead of metal.

Size: He stands 14" tall and is 10" wide. He is made of high-fire stoneware and the glaze is handmade by me . The interior is glazed with a food safe lead free glaze.

Medium: Stoneware

Materials and Process: Hand thrown and sculpted stoneware, and high fire glaze. Refired for luster glazes.

Signed: Yes. Artist signed, numbered and dated with the year produced.

Original: Entirely handmade using no molds.Each jug is an original. Comes with a Certificate of originality.
