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."

This jugwashandmadeof stoneware clayand glazed in a food safe rutile glaze. It was fired in a gas reduction kiln to cone 10 bending.
The jug was turned on a potter'swheel and thena blue slip was painted onto the clay. The pictures of thelion jumping on the antelope, and the green man werethencarved into the clay.
