Two Apples and Slipware Jug - Still Life.
The potter Ray Finch took over the Winchcombe Country Pottery in Gloucestershire from Michael Cardew in 1937, producing a range of simple yet beautiful functional ware. The jug here turned up in Nelson market, Lancashire, some years ago (about 1979),. I think I paid 20 pence for it. It sat on the windowsill in our house for years until the cat knocked it off and broke it (in 2003). I stored the pieces in a box and have recently glued them together for this painting.
From an oil painting.
