Multi-face Face Jug Pottery By Mahlke--the Yankee Potter For Sale

I'm thinking this jug is evidence that deep down below the surface of this conscience, a rustling of small voices continues to say, "Something is out of tune."

Up for offer here is a great conglomeration of varied jugs, pots, and crocks growing right out of and into each other. It's the result of those conflicting voices, plans, and styles swirling around in this distracted noggin of mine that somehow sprouted into this week's featured pot.

This is not the first of these multi-headed monstrosities I've made, but I think it may be one of the more successful. It has a great sense of balance, interesting glaze, dynamic facial features, and a nice diversity of pottery--it is the first of these to feature a jar rather than only mini jugs. All pieces of this jug were turned on the wheel and then later fused together before firing.

Examine the pictures below for some close ups of the faces. The first picture shows the main or base jug (which stands around 7"). The second picture shows the central mini jug (which stands just over 3").

The next two pictures show the two outside mini pots. The picture on the left is a close up of the mini jar. It is just over 4" tall. The second picture is another miniature jug that is around 4.5" tall.

The total height of the piece is 11". It is glazed in my CT mud glaze harvested from a creek near Lover's Leap Park here in New Milford, CT. This time the glaze developed some unique turquoise runs and pools.
