my first attempt at a (realistic-ish) floral design. i feel i learnt a lot creating this piece, some of the flowers came out better than others and the difference in thair appearance (particularly in regards to shading) has altered noticeably as i progressed around the jug revising and improving my technique.
the design is painted on pre made bisque using cromartie underglaze before being dip glazed and fired.



this is my favourite  flower on the jug



this was the first side i painted.....



and the second.



top view.

comments and advice are more than welcome.

the fact that the inside is green just sends it over the top.

Wowzers!  If I'd've seen that jug in a shop, I'd've assumed they were decals under a clear glaze.  Congratulations on a successful first effort!

More than the flowers, I'm absolutely ga-ga over the shape of the lip/spout/rim -- does it have a real name?

unfortunatly i cant take credit for the shape or the style of the jug (its this one (traditional jug) from country love ceramics  http://www.countryloveceramics.com/shop/index.php?cPath=166_3_13&osCsid=10e3c51ea4ffe31cd5ce79a790ae5186

but, like you i too thought the shape was elegant Smiley
