The better to see you with, my dear....from the tenderly twisted & immense imagination of Michael Ball.

John Lewis Miles Pottery - Face Jug, ca. 1860–70 / Face jugs were made by African American slaves and freedmen working in potteries in the Edgefield District of South Carolina, an area of significant stoneware production in the nineteenth century. The distinctive features of the jugs, notably the kaolin inserts for the eyes, relate in style and material to ritualistic objects of the Congo and Angola region of western Africa, whence many slaves in South Carolina descended.
