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 (9.5" tall) 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.

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 blue maple leaf patterned pitcher holds two quarts. Don't tell anyone that I know this, but that's the perfect size in which to mix up a packet of Koolaid.

SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE. Sorry, but I do not ship to Alaska or Hawaii.
