Where is my mind?
A Squirrel! Are the doors locked? I need a vacation.
Inspired by the long running face jug tradition of the American South, this Spirit Monster was designed to hold spirits, adorn a bar or mantle and keep evil spirits away. A beautiful combo of two homemade glazes we love; the surface of this piece was blessed by the kiln gods.
Face jugs have a checkered history, as does the American south, but one of their main purposes was to ward off children from the liquor or medicine within. A South Carolina potter claimed "the idea was that the face jug would be ugly enough to scare the devil away from your grave so your soul could go to heaven." There are many interpretations, but we were inspired to honor this tradition and create our own joyful whiskey monster to protect your stash and ward off evil.
Our Monster Collection is a collaboration, each individual piece thought up, carefully sculpted, carved and glazed by Lisa Tantillo and Zack Callaghan. We love creating these monsters! Each piece makes the journey from dirt to final glaze in our Atlanta studio.
This whiskey jug holds a respectable 20 oz of your finest spirits and soul warming beverages.
Our glazes are always lead free and food safe.
Dishwasher and microwave friendly.
Please wash by hand so it lasts forever!!
We will carefully package your buddy to ensure it arrives safely on your doorstep. I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Thanks for supporting our vision.
