Tall, wheel thrown pitcher with Salal 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 8” tall by 4” wide and holds 48 ounces of liquid.
As pictured, there is a small surface crack in the handle of this pitcher. The handle is still strong and the pitcher quite functional so I am selling at a discounted rate.
Like ferns, Salal bushes are also everywhere in the western cascades region. But even though common, they have a secret. Many people don’t know that their berries are edible and for the most part, delicious. The flavor varies quite a bit from plant to plant but overall, I’ve found them to be really good and they pair well with blueberries and huckleberries, particularly when cooked together in a fruit crisp.
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.
