Shell work jug. This jug is made using the same technique as the memory jugs; objects embedded in mortar, but in this piece sea shells are used instead of china shards and the exposed mortar is left unvarnished. It also features three dimensional rusticated faux twig work. The front is done similar to a “sailors valentine” and the top includes stacked scallop shells that diminish in size. The top is finished with a cone shaped finial or stopper. Dimensions: 15” Height x 12” Width
