Personal Pitcher 710 Standard Clay, Metallic Green Glaze

It's so nice to be able to make a personal pitcher using a one piece template, an Intaglio mat for patterning and a tried & true glaze!

My 'one piece' pitchers work well with the addition of a handle, even a found wood one!

This is one of the larger pitchers I make which is handle-free; my galleries sell all of them well! The pattern is from one of my Intaglio mats, Dot Leaf, available on my Etsy site.

I'll post some of the smaller ones as well,

Interesting pattern. Looks like you made one of the ears over sized to fold over the near side, but handled it carefully enough to retain the impressed pattern? I've thrown a few handle-less creamer/syrup pitchers a little smaller than this, and liked them a lot. Alas my customers didn't seem that interested. :-(

The attached pitcher template should be printed on an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper although printing it smaller will also work to make a smaller pitcher.
