From Ancient Egypt to English Country Slipware

I think I've said before that my work can be quite wide and varied, well here's an example:  Over the past few days I've been working on sets of Egyptian Canopic Jars and some English Slipware.

Canopic Jar Set

Slipware Puzzle Jug
In this jar there is good liquor
Fit for either clerk or vicar
But to drink and not to spill
Will try the utmost of your skill 

A Slipware Harvest Jug
Good luck to the hoof and the horn
Good luck to the flock and fleece
Good luck to the growers of corn
With blessings of plenty and peace

Getting a bit nautical with this Mermaid Jug

A Health to King Charles
