Wheel thrown stoneware pitcher with slip decorated poppy bud and 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.
Poppy’s are native to california but have crept northward with the aid of gardeners, and rising temperatures. I know them for both their stunning shapes and colors and their effective use as a safe and gentle pain reliever when tinctured.
