New Shape from Ireland

Old milk tankard in Ireland
We're back from Ireland and I couldn't wait to get on the wheel and make some pots. I found myself influenced by an old rusty milk churn or milk tankard I saw in Ireland at my brother-in-law's house. Mary grew up on a dairy farm, and back in the day, they used these tankards to carry the milk by horse-drawn cart to the creamery. I suppose I could call these "milk jugs." What do you think?
Four 'milk jugs'
I like this one best
