I’ve often thought that pitchers were one of the most defining pots of any given potter’s repertoire. I like to walk an art fair and handle all the other potter’s pitchers. It’s a bit like detecting a musician’s style by hearing the way (s)he interprets some standard or someone else’s song.

I redesigned these two-quart pitchers a couple of years ago. I started making pitchers that, in shape and color, imitated gourds. I noticed right away that these gourd-shaped pitchers – with their weight down low and their gradually tapered necks – poured SO much more smoothly than the pitchers I’d been making for years.

Coincidentally, I blogged at length about this pitcher -- the method I used to create the stong, textured vertical lines. You can read about it here (by copy'n'pasting the address into your brouser):

From a rim I leave thick, I draw the clay upward into a graceful, thinned spout that pours with a minimum of drip-back. Additionally, it channels the liquid as you pour it.

To echo the spout’s graceful rise above the rim, I pull the handle from the other side in an uninterrupted arc.

This green pitcher also sports a dark, dark green liner glaze to add illusion to the depth of the interior. Its two quart size is easy to manage, but ample to save you multiple trips to the kitchen for refills!

Thanks for taking a look at my site!
