At first glance, this pitcher is a delicate, fragile piece with its elegant thin handle, but it is nonetheless a strong and sturdy jug which will take the weight of the liquid.
We enjoy imagining this pitcher being made in the studio - being thrown then squished out of shape and in the process acquiring its lovely pouring spout. This playfulness is typical of the maker's work, in her quirky reimaginations of familiar, functional and everyday pieces which are a joy to own and to use.
The pitcher has a wide mouth, which makes a generous yet accurate pouring spout for serving water or milk at the table. We also love to use this jug as decoration, and it makes a fantastic container for displaying a bunch of freshly snipped garden roses.
The unpretentious, rustic look of this piece is simply delightful. There's something so British about white pottery, with its timeless, classic beauty and it lives equally happily in a country or town home.
