Cotton Jug - Natural and Grey


The jug is a historical object, evidence of origins, of handwork, of soil. Physical evidence of the beginning of human society and its need to exist and feed itself. Like other ancient objects, its use is accompanied by human gestures. What is its function? We are still familiar with it; the jug still has a place in the everyday life of the modern person. Its use has been preserved, opposed to many other ancient objects, whose use and the gestures that followed have been lost over time.
The iota jugs are a tribute to that historic object. We chose to reproduce, experiment, and quote it through our handwork – crochet. We knitted it with raw cotton – a natural material that comes from the earth, which, like clay, can be made into a shape. But unlike clay, it remains soft and porous. The use of cotton eliminates the ancient use of jugs. What is its function? This is a question that accompanies every design process at our studio. What human gestures does it make? People seek intimacy, some inspiration, seek laughter, cry, seek valuable moments that are collected into memories.
The jug is symbolic of memory, heritage, and the importance of human gestures. To our ability as humans to create. The jug has an inner space that requests to be filled, and precisely at this time it reminds us to fill our lungs full of air and our hearts full of everything that makes us thrive.
