A southern potter capturing the
South in his art!
South in his art!
The jug on the left captures a typical coastal palmetto tree with crescent moon rising. Red Iron Oxide accents the tree and lettering. One could see just such scene on any moonlit night along Carolinas sandy beaches. These jars can be personalized with initials or a unique inscription.
This Edgefied style jug is decorated with slip trailing on the top but the delightful finish is a serpent that wraps itself around the jugs body. The snake is a historically common adornment on jugs that have been found in the Edgefield area. All pieces found at Levi Wright Pottery are safe to use to contain drinkable liquids and are dishwasher and microwave safe.
Whether displaying your beautiful palmetto plate or platter on a stand, or serving a mound of hot brownies these gorgeous wheel thrown plates and platters will add beauty and grace as well as a touch of Southern hospitality to any occasion. Don't forget the iced tea now yall.
Serpentine Ring Jug
The ring jug is an old traditional form believed to be used as a small traveling cantina that could be convenient to store on a saddle horn. As an artist I am fascinated by the designs of traditional pottery that used decoration such as scary faces and other designs to keep children away from the contents that would be stored inside. In my mind I could see some old timer wanting a ring jug to store his moonshine. In traditional southern jugs scary faces were used to discourage the youngin's from sampling inappropriate things that were inside the jug- I imagined my cowboy thinking a snake would achieve the same purpose to keep the shine out of the wrong hands.
