Face Jug


Face jugs have been created since the 1700's to today. The reason for creation is still a bit of a mystery. The main theory is face jugs were created by African slaves working on plantations. Many slaves were first brought to the Caribbean before landing in America. Here they were exposed to Voodo which mingled with their own native beliefs and later merged with Christianity. Jug shards have been found on grave sites and along the underground railroad. This implies that these jugs were very important to the slaves. Speculation is that slaves were not allowed to have tomb stones so they developed face jugs as grave markers designed to keep evil spirits away.
In 1820, the practice of making face jugs spread throughout the South especially South Carolina,Georgia and North Carolina. In the 1920's these jugs became know as "Ugly Jugs" and were used to store alcohol. The jugs became uglier in an attempt to identify the contents.
We are offering a contemporary Face Jug,signed by the Texas artist,Carl Block. The face has been sculptured by hand into the jug. With a lavender face,bulging eyes,eyebrows, prominent nose, ears and teeth, this gentleman leaves a lasting impression. The back of the jug is decorated with  swirls of color from top to bottom. This is a "one of a kind" for any collector.
