Lemonade, or Fresh Flowers

Which will it be for you? Raspberry / Magenta Pitcher with Heart Detail, $60.
This stoneware pitcher measures 7" tall x 8" wide (handle to spout) x 5 " deep. Comfortably holds 40 ounces (or 1250 ml) of your favorite beverage.
This piece was made on the potter's wheel and then squeezed gently while the clay was still wet to form it into an oval. The bulbous belly and low handle make this pitcher very stable and ergonomically designed. The shade of red is finely dappled from watermelon to cherry and even into magenta. A rectangular stamp design of multiple hearts graces one side. During the firing, the glaze flowed into perfect fat droplets, stopping just short of the bottom of pot. This pitcher sits flat, and pours perfectly with nary a drip. Makes a nice vase, too.
All Fine Mess Pottery stoneware pieces are leadfree, ovenproof, and dishwasher and microwave safe. Refrigerator is fine, too. Stoneware is the most durable pottery made.
