Zuza Water Jug
This is Gingerfinch's new favourite ceramics discovery... the incredible Zuza Water Jug by Yuro Cuchor.
Zuza features a unique geometric shape and sleek, asymmetric profile; inspired by 1970s aesthetic. We love the off-center handle and the generous spout - it pours beautifully. Zuza holds around 900ml, so it's perfect as a bedside water jug or on the table for your romantic dinner for two.
Zuza's colourways are also inspired by the 1970s, with a modern twist. The vibrant pink, rust and fresh olive will add a pop of colour to your contemporary home.
The Zuza Water Jug was the winner of the 2020 VIVID Design Award in the 'Object' category. It is a handmade item and may have some imperfections.
What We Love About It
We have never seen a water jug quite like Zuza. It is such a striking design piece that you'll want to display it on a shelf or table while it's not in use. And we have no doubt that Zuza will be fought over by your descendants in decades to come.

The Story Behind It
Yuro Cuchor is a contemporary artist originating from Slovakia where he practiced ceramics and stone restoration. In Australia, he graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor's Degree in Visual Art.
In his professional practice, Cuchor experiments with constructing and reconstructing forms from a multiplicity of materials. His work is based on 3D geometric components that are assembled in numerous ways - enabling endless and varied possibilities in structure and form.
Yuro's belief is that the designed object needn't have a single purpose, but rather it can be a starting point for a configured object with a completely different purpose.
