The slate colour of this earthenware jug infuses it with an industrial and contemporary vibe that would not normally be associated with clay. The distressed finish and strong linear design make it look like it has been crafted from metal. The streamlined relief pattern adds to the mechanised feel of manufacture, but this is a wholly handmade jug in every sense of the word and in every detail. It is partly glazed on the inside and hand-painted on the outside, so we recommend that this pitcher is for decorative use only and it will look amazing filled with colourful blooms.
The manufacturer who supplies us with this vase employs nearly five hundred people in Vietnam who use their skill with clay to make this lovely product. In addition to receiving a statutory wage for their artistry, the business offers employees lunches, social insurance, health insurance, annual medical check up, team trips out and sports’ awards for football and volley ball, plus annual bonuses. Their concern also extends to helping to protect the environment as well as employees and have third party annual audit at the factory to help to improve the working environment as well as recycling any waste product.
