Good things come to those who clean. I made this pitcher a few years ago when I was desperate for something presentable to put milk in. I found it on the back of a shelf when I was cleaning my studio. (Which is still not finished but I least I can work there.) I remember taking it downstairs last summer to copy the size and shape. It holds about three cups.
I'm pretty sure I made it in my Egyptian phase after the Gifts of the Nile exhibit at the RISD Museum back in the late nineties. I should have made a lid for it. Does anyone else have cats who stick their paws in the milk and lick the paw when the mouth is too narrow to drink from? This seems to be a universal cat behavior. This crew did not learn it from our previous cats. In the future, I promise, I will make lids for my pitchers and creamers.
I threw yesterday for the first time since I moved upstairs for the winter.....4 small bowls, 1 biggish bowl, 2 mugs and two handbuilt plates. Aloysius sat in two of the small bowls right after I threw them.....just came over and sat down in them, which really pissed me off.....at the same time he looked so stupidly nonplussed, walking away with two bowls stuck to his backside that I couldn't help the laughter. The clean up with sponge, water and baby wipes was punishment enough.
Today I am making tiles to fix the shower. Making the tiles is fun,,,,fixing the shower is not.
I thought I was clearing plant shelves so I could begin to start some seeds. Marigolds, alyssum and impatiens......I don't bother with vegetables...it's easier to buy seedlings from one of our local growers as I don't need that many plants. Hah! We only think we are in charge of our companions....they run our lives....but they're sooooo cute!!!
Thanks for stopping by...........~s~
