Oval Pitcher in Forest Green, made September 2008

I love pitchers.

Not just making them.

But pitchers. I LOVE everything about them.

Some potters go nutty over teapots, teabowls or whatever.

I love pitchers.

I love the way handles are so crucial to the balance of the form as well as its function.

I adore seeing spouts offering up the contents of the interior.

Pitchers can be so many things, but I think most (if not all) articulate in some manner,
the human-ness of pottery. The lips of the spout, the belly of the jug, the foot, the broad shoulders supporting the sprouting handle. It's all there!
