Altered Pitchers or Jugs

Altered Pitchers or Jugs

I’m having fun with some pitchers or jugs as they call them here in Australia.  In the USA, jugs refers to “breasts”, so I have trouble with that transfer in our common language.  Sort of like, we say “fanny pack”.  In Australia, they think that is super gross and funny – they say “bum bag”, cause in Australia, fanny means vagina!  But I digress….

I really love altering pitchers!  So here are some examples of the altered pitchers/jugs!

    oh it works really well on that lower down jug. I remember being shocked when first hearing an American business man refer to ‘fanny’ – he didn’t want to know when he was told it had a different meaning here in Oz. That was back in the ’70s… hopefully there would be more sensitivity these days to cultural differences.

    I like the subtle added texture on the bases which is quite difficult to do. It is what I call a little bit extra which is what makes a piece.

What do you think?
