I've been inspired by the medieval jug for a few decades now. Even the cup form is something I've done for years. When I came upon this site I got the cold sweats and goose pimples. I swear this work was made by me or my ancestors in another life. http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ceramics/pages/ceramics.asp
The yellow ribbed jug makes my heart stop. I love the thumbed foot and the beer barrel aesthetic. I think a Viking entered my being and I'm just here on earth to make some pots while I wait for Valhalla. Hopefully it's a while away. Have a beer and a bump ready for me will ya Eric the Red.
