Large Colored Porcelain Pitcher RKC032

Details

A jumbo sized colored porcelain pitcher! Over 8" tall, holds over half a gallon, about 10 cups or 2.5 liters. Thrown in two pieces and joined. This piece has some imperfections in the clear glaze -or this would have been a $100 pot. Still pretty to look at, and designed for hard use! This is another piece that's been hiding in my basement in a bin that I thought had flowerpots in it!

To create this piece, I made up a "batch" of each color by hand mixing the colored stains into a pound of clay, then making layers of the colors into a "loaf". I threw a porcelain bowl on the wheel and stopped at about half the size I wanted. I then kneaded the colored clay loaf very lightly and threw a bottomless cylinder to match the size of the top of the bowl. I flipped the colored cylinder onto the bowl and joined with some vinegar enhanced slip. I then finished throwing the bowl "normally" and let it dry a bit. I scraped the clay gently with a steel rib to clean off up the throwing slip and expose the crisp delineation of the colors. Bright yellow and cobalt blue predominate.

The piece was then bisque fired to make the first transition from clay to ceramic. Next I put a clear glaze on top of the piece to provide a non-porous surface for food usage. Then I fired the piece to maturity.

This piece contains no lead and is food safe. Dishwasher safe too, although a bit large for that. Do not microwave please as the different colors expand at different rates. It's not a good shape for cooking but you could reheat in it if you if you start with a cold oven.

I am quoting Zone 8 shipping. If you live closer to me and if it costs less (next county over would be more like $7 and you can always come and get it at no charge!) I will refund the extra shipping. I will ship to many other countries. Please contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase and I will be happy to set this listing up just for your needs.

Policies

I try to ship within 2 business days of receiving your confirmed payment. If there is a delay I will contact you by email to let you know.

If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, I will accept your return and refund your purchase price less shipping upon receipt of your item in good condition.

My RKMixables line is designed for you to interchange pieces to suit your changing needs. The necklaces terminate in lobster clasps which will connect to each other, but I have planned for you to add a clasp and jumprings to connect more than one piece. The clasp will add another inch or so to the length of the piece, and the jumprings will keep the pieces together, whether you have chosen to twist or braid them or to cascade several lengths.

I can make alterations to many of the jewelry pieces before shipping if you desire. Necklaces can be shortened, and in some cases lengthened. I can also add an extender chain or clasp, and it is possible in many cases to use an "extender" to actually take up some length.

I can change many of the earrings to leverbacks at additional cost (leverbacks are much more expensive than wires) and I can change wires to posts. BUT - I do not have posts in copper yet. I also have some clip-on backs!

I am always happy to discuss making a special piece for you. Please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for reading about my policies.
