INSPIRATION

This pitcher is part of a series of vessels fired in a soda kiln, where the atmosphere inside applies a layer of glaze. I am interested in sharing agency over the final product with the process itself and the intersection between skill and chance it creates. 
Pitchers are unique as objects in that they are created to hold but also to disperse. They are unique in their intention to give, and this function makes pitchers an intermediary rather than a singular object; a note in a melody. There is a humble selfless-ness to pitchers that offer a hopeful promise of sharing with the people around us.
