Description: Ceramic wheel thrown pitcher made with stoneware clay and glazed with our SJD metallic black glaze.
Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
It is made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each pitcher is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the pitcher to give it a better finish and create a bottom rim before hand carving each one. Every pitcher goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the pottery is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the pitcher and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item. Once cooled, the bottom is sanded for a smooth finish.
