Folk pottery such as face jugs began as whimsical objects created after hours, but studio pottery influences are also present, as in the works of English potter Mark Hewitt, who studied under Michael Cardew. Cardew was inspired by West African potters so the face jug tradition has come full circle.

Pottery although similar to 3-Dimensional Art still warrants a category by itself.  Simple yet elegant even spherical forms deserves contemplation on their own.
