This stunning pitcher comes alive as if it has grown from a vine to become its own creature. A twisted vine comes up from the base of the large leaf at the bottom of the pitcher to form the handle. The large leaves surround the exterior of the pitcher slowly opening up towards the spout which points out viciously.The pitcher is glazed in warm tan and brown tones with accents of light green glaze in the folds of the leaves and vines.

Marks: Stamped artist's cipher
