TALL SIMPLE PITCHER
A simple pitcher enhanced by all of the subtle signs that it has been made by hand: an organic shape not quite perfectly straight, pinch marks that show where artisanal hands have clasped the clay to create a spout, and a u-shaped handle with subtle dents and grooves that result from the hand-shaping process.
The gestures of the glazing motions have been preserved in the smooth powdery matte white glaze that covers the ivory clay. The glaze does not quite reach the base leaving an unglazed bottom rim that highlights the full beauty of the pale clay.
The simple pitcher is large enough to hold water for the table but small enough not to be cumbersome to use. It can also be used as a rustic way to serve wine or as an understated vase for flowers or wild grasses.
Designed by Sarah Van Raden and individually crafted in Portland, each piece is hand thrown in Sarah's beautiful bright studio. Her warm homey earthenware is characterised by simple clean lines that are soft and easy to live with. All Notary ceramics are handcrafted out of clay made in the Pacific Northwest using only the highest quality raw materials sourced from around the United States. Made in small batches with great care, each piece is a little work of art.
Size: 8.9cm (W) x 17cm (H) though exact sizes may vary. We celebrate the variations inherent in handmade items, we hope you feel the same way.
Volume: approx 750ml
Handcrafted in Portland, OR.
Care: to preserve its full beauty and extend longevity, this pitcher is better when washed by hand. Though the occasional spin throughout a dishwasher is also fine.
