What's for sale?
This is a medium sized, salt-glazed jug by the collectable British potter Jane Hamlyn. It's nicely shaped and the textured surface has a beautiful blend of blues, greens and browns. As with all her work, attention has been paid to the smallest detail.
It has a slender waist with a spiral pattern of colours and inscribed markings beneath. The upper body is mainly blue with a pattern of diagonal, rouletted marks. The handle is in green and brown and has been given the appearance of twisted rope. Finally the smooth, ribbed interior has a beautiful graduation from blue to green.
Salt glaze is a finish produced by the addition of salt and other ingredients into the kiln during the high temperature part of the firing. The technique requires a lot of skill and Jane Hamlyn is an expert. Her work is widely exhibited and is quite collectable.
