Welcome to the final installment of “Stoneware Week”, the second theme week presentation of Suzanne’s Cottage.
This simple vignette graces a side table in the gathering room. It is winter and game boards are ready. The small swan decoy is all that’s left of our local waterfowl, as all her real friends have departed for warmer climes.
There is nothing particularly unique or special about this simple brown jug. But I loved the soft earth tone, compared to many of the light gray or white ones that I have. When I placed it in this display, I was drawn to the juxtaposition of the round hardness of the vessel compared to the other elements in this box.
