Wheel thrown stoneware pitcher with slip decorated manzanita 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. This pitcher is 3.5” wide by 7.5” tall and holds 32 ounces.
Mazanita’s grow throughout the western cascades region that I call home. Their smooth reddish bark and pale grey green leaves make a striking plant that I’ve been fascinated with since I was a kid.
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.
