Puzzle jugs, one of the most enduring of medieval pottery forms, were first used as tavern games and traps for the unwary. The trick was how to drink form the jug and not spill the contents all over ones' self. First created the 13th to 14th century, these jugs have been produced, in variety of style and expression, until well into the 19th Century.
On Colors and Glazes
All of our glazes are hand mixed from formulas that we have developed. Each item can be ordered in either blue, brown, rust brown, green, white, turquoise, glossy purple, shino, red gold, blue purple, lapis satin, fire opal and teal, unless specifically stated otherwise. Custom colors are available, but there may be an additional charge. Due to the nature of glazes, exact color matching is not possible. Please contact Timothy Whitcomb with questions and requests.
Note: Most pottery items are not in stock and will be custom-made to your specifications. Due to the custom hand-made nature of the items, rush orders are not available.
