Daffodils and Jug

Local daffodils in a pretty jug that I purchased when I lived in Dunedin. The jug is by Rosemary McQueen and I have a small matching bowl, both bought on a visit to the Stuart Street Potter’s Co-operative. They’re special as the artist produces maiolica (or majolica) ware. [The link goes to a blog article I found: The difference between Pottery, Ceramics and Majolica, with special regard to Italian Ceramics]

    1. In C13 maiolica was imported to Italy via Mallorca (from the Middle East). Interesting history which is briefly outlined in the article I linked to. Did your pitcher and bowl come directly from the artist?
