Wheel thrown stoneware pitcher with slip decorated fern leaf design. The inside is glazed with a white glossy liner glaze; the outside is unglazed matte white slip and sandy speckled stoneware clay body. I used a diamond sanding pad to sand the outside smooth and velvety to the touch. It is 3.5” wide by 7.5” high and holds 32 ounces.
As pictured, there is a small surface crack in the handle. The handle is still strong and functional so I am selling this pitcher at a discount.
Ferns are as common as clouds here in the pacific northwest and make up much of the understory of the Douglas fir and redwood forests. My deepest memories of home are of glossy wet ferns lining misty trails through towering trees.
This listing is for the piece pictured. It is microwave and dishwasher safe but as dishwashers are hard on ceramics, hand washing will prolong the life of your piece. It is handmade and as such each piece is unique and beautifully imperfect.
