These past couple of weeks I have been making asparagus trays, teapots and mugs… which means pulling lots of handles. With handles on the brain while eating breakfast one morning, I looked at our syrup pitcher and decided it would be nice to make a syrup pitcher without a handle… just something small with two indents on either side for your fingers.
Here are a couple of photos of the test pitchers finished, with the second round drying in the back. You never can tell how proportions, weight, and feel are going to turn out until they come out of the kiln and you actually use them. The second round of pitchers are slightly taller, lighter, (3/4 lb rather than 1 lb) and narrower on the oval.
