Currently exhibiting at Auckland’s Objectspace Gallery is a display of crocheted and beaded jug covers.

‘Put a cover on it’ is the collection of Maggie Gresson who has written an accompanying blog at http://www.objectspace.org.nz/Exhibitions/Detail/Put+a+Cover+on+It.

Here are some pieces that I’ve been fortunate enough to find at local op shops over the years.

A couple of personal favourites are the following two intricate pieces which feature a tea cup in the middle.

This piece tells you the purpose of the intended cover with the word ‘milk’ embroidered on it.

Three bright examples all with yellow plastic beads – the largest one on the left is actually quite heavy.  No chance of any flies getting underneath the cover!

Designs using shells offer a more rustic look.

Keeping up with the Royal Family,  this cover commemorates the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and is appropriately surrounded by red and blue beads.
