ALion hunting and jumping onto the back of an antelope was a common coffin or sarcophagusdecoration. The green man wasalso common and was often at the top of a pillar or a door frame.
Cathedral art is incorporated into my jugs with the use of colored slips; usually blue for the contrast. I started using thesecarvingsto decorate the jugs with a style I had picked up from the Book of Kells and other illuminated manuscripts.
This type of pottery decorationis called"slipware decoration."
