Formerly a Pitcher

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a vase that was supposed to be a pitcher. Or maybe I should have called it a pitcher that wanted to be a vase. The original article can be found here.  Some folks asked to see images of the finished pot so here it is.



I'm not really sure about the glaze. It seems there was some mistake when the glaze was last mixed up and an incorrect ingredient got put into the mix. This means that this is not the look I was expecting but it is a pretty interesting glaze. What do you think?

Faceted Casserole In Progress

Who thinks of casseroles in the summer?  Potters, that's who.  I've been making some now so they will be glazed and fired and ready for the cool weather.  Pottery is not a quick process.  Summer is also a time when I experiment with something new.  You may have read my posts about making a faceted mug.  I've taken it a step further and made a faceted casserole.

The handles and the knob on the lid are textured to enhance the texture on the facet but I left the lid smooth.  I think it gives the eye someplace to rest but I think a few lines around the rim would be okay too.  What do you think?

  1. Is the cover/handle on the top to let steam escape (the open section in the middle?

    1. No Linda, the cover is solid, I make the handles that way so the lid can sit on it. It makes a great serving bowl. Look at the casserole in the slide show at the top of the blog and you'll see what I mean.

    2. oh I see what you mean I've seen that casserole in the slide slow before but never realized the 'bowl' was the top to the casserole, what an excellent design for serving,

  2. Oh wow! That's fantastic! I think you could go either way with the rim. I love it!

    1. Thanks Gary. So much can go wrong while faceting, I'm happy they came out at all.

  4. Very nice piece! I like a flat handle like that so that when you set the lid upside down on the counter it sits safely, not rolling around.

    1. Thanks Michèle, it's especially helpful if you have any condensation in the lid, it keeps the counters clean. Of course if you want to use it as a serving dish it could be pre-heated by cooking the casserole.
