Barrington Pottery Mug, Sage
Exclusive to the National Trust, this rustic mug 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.
A handmade mug is one of the nicest ways to connect with the craft of the potter.
When you cup the pot in your hands you can be transported back to the potter’s workshop.
These mugs have a pleasing shape that invites you to wrap your hands around whilst sipping a hot beverage.
Handmade pots are as much about how they feel as they look.
Complete the set with our jug, 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 mug 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 two thumb swipes, you can often see the potters' 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 mugs are then hand glazed before being fired again this time to a higher temperature.
This also takes a further thirty-six hours.
These are special products with provenance.
