At first I thought this thing on a plinth might have been a tankard, but no, it is a humble jug. I wonder what on earth was the root of inspiration here Chad? I suspect this could be something to do with domesticity. Yet I would have thought this place to have been far removed from that sort of thing, given the cavortings, mental, spiritual and physical that surely were the hallmark of such a place.

So in the end I am forced to conclude the jug might be an example of longing for a life of impossible simplicity hereabouts..
gutteridge: Thank you for your thoughtful thoughts Tiff. Of course the carverer might have done it for a laugh.

..and people who made big pot/jug things.
gutteridge: They were experimental with their thoughts and ideas.

I don't like oversized things like this, Chad, but a good subject, nevertheless
gutteridge: You wouldn’t like my head then Lisl.

Oh, I like this flower pot very much. Virginia Woolf was here, too, as I recall - it must be fascinating to be there.
gutteridge: Sometimes you visit places and they are good, but sometimes you visit places and find it very special and extremely interesting. This was one of those.
That's a big jug Chd
gutteridge: A fine observation Bill.
The gardener's work is most in evidence here and in using the sculpture, brings it all together.
gutteridge: That is very true.
Quite a pot!
gutteridge: Perfect for drinking your tea out of.
Quite an unusual find.
gutteridge: It was well worth a visit Brian.
it would be difficult to pour anything out of that pitcher Chad....petersmile
gutteridge: Er, because it is cemented in place I suppose Peter.
The stalwarts of Culture. Oh where are they now???
gutteridge: Good point Rob.
I do not think anyone is likely to try to nick this slower-pot!
