Sarah Bak - Wave Pitcher
Looking for something sweet to serve lemonade in? Or water or milk at the dinner table? This pitcher could perk up your table and comfortably holds 32 ounces of your favorite hot or cold beverage. It is hand thrown out of porcelain clay, and hand painted in a gentle wave and cloud pattern. It's lightweight form and comfortable handle adds to the functionality of this pretty item. Because it is dishwasher and microwave safe, it is easy to use every day.
A little bit of info about the process: After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom trimmed of excess material and the handle is added, I paint the design using underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, a clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees. Each pot goes through approximately 24 steps and take 3 to 4 weeks to complete.
Approximate dimensions: 5 3/4" tall x 6" wide x 4 1/2" deep
