Work in progress on a new sculpture/jug the 'Berchtwalder bartmankrug'.
This is the first of a serie vases/jugs/sculptures for my project 'Woodman's journey'.
The jug is based on historical (mostly German) stoneware Bellarmine jugs (or in Dutch Baardmankruik and German Bartmannkrug).
I have always been fascinated by these jugs and I have some original 17th century ones (unfortunately not a complete jug, but only shards) in my own archeological collection.
Berchtwald means "Great ruler".
