Here there be Monsters by Jam Westwood 2023

Slipware Harvest Jug with chewing gum. Sgraffito decoration.

Inspired by those on display at The Burton, this collection of six harvest jugs embodies a physical and obvious play on words. Designed to appear as just a bit of fun on the surface, they ask us to consider what the joke really is. Women’s bodies are often assumed by default, to be public property; open to commentary, scrutiny, judgement and ridicule. Like the doodled symbols and poetic texts of traditional harvest jugs, these reimagined versions suggest a collective social subconscious and much like a jug full of booze – it isn’t entirely wholesome.
