L I N E S - P I T C H E R

heres a good one to finish out the week: a super cute pitcher! it’s a small one though, for something like syrup. (if youre the type of person who doesnt pour directly from the bottle like we do in my house. who has time to warm it up when theres food to be shoved into your mouth?)

I made this with an accompanying cup, but it was ruined in a tragic kiln accident in which kristy, my teacher, accidentally set the kiln for the wrong temperature and ruined about five of my pieces. I
ll post accusatory and incriminating photos of that later.

but still, the cuteness! it
s 4.5" tall x 2.75" in diameter. though if you count the handle and spout, it’s 4.25" across.
m not sure you can see very well in the photos, but the lines on the handle have chartreuse underglaze in them. the outside is pure white matte glaze, and the inside is french gray.
wheel thrown, but the handle and spout were hand built. signed and dated, march 2010.
not for sale. I think I like it too much.

F A U X - B O I S - S T U M P Y - P L A N T E R

I did mention how I couldn’t stop using the wood design this past session, didn’t I? well, now it is time to mention how much I love succulents. and how if no one buys this, I am pretty sure it’s going to end up on my window sill at work, or maybe in the back yard, filled with succulents. or maybe, just maybe, I will plant it with succulents that are currently in the back yard, and put it on my window sill at work. though I am running out of room. and I have plenty of pots to fill. so someone please buy this.

oh! maybe I’ll fill it and sell it at the art show I'm doing in september. maybe. (more details on the show when I have them.)

slightly oval-y, this pot is 6.25" wide at its widest and just under 6" at its narrowest x 3" tall. it’s a little “organic” in shape, to look more stumpy. like a wood stump, not like short and squat. though I was aiming for that too.
I coated this with iron oxide in hopes that it would make the grain pattern stand out, then I covered it in pure white matte glaze.
hand built and signed, march 2010.
$25 (sorry, michael made me raise my prices)
