'Cranogwen' jug - Made to order

£75.00 / Made to Order

This jug celebrates 'Cranogwen', the Bardic name of Welsh poet and master mariner Sarah Jane Rees (1839 - 1916).

'Cranogwen' is one of the 'Monumental Welsh Women' celebrated in statues around Wales, and given that poetry and seafaring are staples of the lustre tradition we thought she deserved a jug too.

Transfer decorated with drawings by Clive Hicks-Jenkins that imagine how she may have looked in her early days as a sailor in the romantic maritime style of the day. Hand painted pink lustre.

Slip cast ceramic jug 11.5 cm tall with a 9cm diameter at base and neck

The hand-made nature of our ware means that it is subject to minor imperfections, just like those from the early C19 that are our inspiration.
