Bottle and jar, by Joe Finch

This stoneware bottle with stopper and jar with lid were made by the Scottish artist Joe Finch in 1980.

The small stoppered bottle and small lidded jar are decorated with sgraffito decoration (a technique where lines are drawn through the slip to expose the body underneath). Both were fired using a wood-fired kiln.

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.
