Jugs Again!

I hate it when I have only a small amount of clay left. I start making smaller pots. I made these jugs that are really only about 5 lbs. They would normally be 10-12. The clay gets too

thin and I think they loose some of their visual strength. I tried to make up for this with doubling up the handle, adding big spouts and in general having a pretty good time of it. I do a pretty nice traditional roundie jug. I thought I'd fool with them a bit to reinvent my jugs. It is hard doing something for the first time. It is easy to slip back into the comfort zone.
I do like that double handle! So at least I got that out of the exercise.
