I made Taos Round Pitcher on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. I pulled a generous handle directly from the pot and added a thumb stop for comfort and leverage. It has a classic round shape, good proportions, with a pedestal foot. Stands 8.5” high.
The ‘Taos’ glaze is a technique of pouring and dipping blue, green, cream, and gold glazes. The overlapping layers often produces a surface reminiscent of the colors in the landscape of Northern New Mexico: blue skies with puffy clouds, green pines, and sunshine!
I pulled the spout from the neck and added a thumb stop for comfort and leverage. It pours smoothly.
Taos Round Pitcher has a 60 oz capacity. I fire to 2200 degrees F so serve up hot as well as cold beverages. Stoneware pottery holds the temperature of its contents better than poured commercial slip ware.
Use the pitcher for a flower vase. Dishwasher safe.
