Barrington Pottery Devon Jug, Sage
Exclusive to the National Trust, this rustic jug was lovingly hand thrown by Paul Jessop & Marion Lewis on our Barrington Court estate.
This neutral sage green variety was created especially for us to sit with our "Wilderness" collection this season.
The Devon Jug is a design classic that graces some of the finest houses in the country. It’s appeal is that of the plain, simple country pottery of a bygone age.
A jug for all seasons which is as much a vase as it is a storage vessel; each one is hand thrown on the potters wheel and has its own unique character.
Complete the set with our mug, pie dish and egg cup.
This artisan pottery range is made for us on our Barrington Court estate, Somerset by Paul Jessop and Marion Lewis.
Their version of this design classic keeps alive all of the traditional skills associated with British Slipware Country Pottery.
The materials they use are few and all locally sourced: a local Devon red clay for the main pots and a ball clay from Cornwall for the decoration or slip.
Each Jug is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel; when it is leather hard the base is trimmed and the handle is added and pulled further. The base of the handle is pressed onto the pot using a thumb. You can often see my hand marks and thumb print just as they used to be made.
They are then left to dry for at least a week before the first firing in the kiln. The first firing known as "biscuit firing” takes over thirty-six hours, once biscuit fired the jugs are then hand glazed before being fired again this time to a higher temperature.
This also takes a further thirty-six hours. The finished result is a traditionally hand thrown design classic; a special product with provenance.
