Milk Jug - Speckled Beach


A handmade stoneware milk jug, thrown on the pottery wheel and glazed in a combination of silk duck egg and shiny sand, overlapping in the middle to create a reactive stripe.

It has a slightly tapered shape and can be used as a small jug or a little vase with a posy of flowers.

Dimensions: approx. 9.5cm height x 7.5cm width

About Emily Doran Pottery 

I make and sell handmade pottery in a rustic coastal design. Everything is carefully made on the pottery wheel and fired in my garden studio in East Sussex, UK. Inspired by a love of the coast and sea my contemporary tableware comes in a range of glazes named after the seascapes they evoke - from calm waters to misty lagoon. I use a flecked stoneware clay that is wonderful to throw with and creates a beautiful speckle than burns through the glaze in the final firing.

I make intentionally small batches of pottery, working to be the opposite of mass produced factory tableware. I believe in craftsmanship and traditional skills. This means pieces are made slowly and intentionally, mug handles are ‘pulled’ and attached by hand, bowls are turned on the pottery wheel and everything is individually dipped in buckets of unique home-made glazes. My tableware is tactile and shows it’s handmade nature by leaving visible the making process - whether that be throwing rings inside a mug or finger ridges on a pulled handle.
