The Corinium jug is made of earthenware. Terracotta and earthenware are the same material. But ‘earthenware’ is used for an object that is made on a potter’s wheel, or is glazed – or both – like tableware. Whereas ‘terracotta’ is used to describe one that’s not made on a potter’s wheel, like a sculpture. Or for unglazed items like flower pots or roof tiles.
The Corinium jug has been given a crackle glaze to make it look much older than it really is. And around the rim, the glaze has ‘come away’ as though it’s fallen off through use, to add even more years to its age.
For a house to feel like a home, it needs things that are purely decorative. Like a picture or a sculpture that will add life and texture to a room. Our ornaments have lots of different finishes, so they look like they’ve been collected over time, and are all part of your unique story.
Our Corinium collection was inspired by Roman pots and antique English pottery. It was designed to look like pieces you’ve brought home from lots of different places. So some have bare stone edges; some have distressing; some have antiqued crackle glaze. But they all have their own character, and no two pieces will be exactly the same.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
This just needs a quick weekly dust with a clean feather duster, or an e-cloth.
Jug vase - Need to Knows
The Corinium jug vase has a watertight glaze so it is suitable for flower water. But the glaze isn’t food-safe so the jug can’t be used for drinks.
