Jug, by Susan McKay

This semi-porcelain jug was made by the Scottish artist Susan McKay in 1988.

The tall, narrow jug appears to have striding 'legs'. The spout and handle, as well as the incised decoration, are brightly painted with extremely vivid glazes.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
