Playing in the mud is fun and stimulating

Tall Pitcher/Vase
Tall pitcher

We lived in Illinois one year before moving to California. We were near the Haeger Pottery factory. They produced slip cast vases with vivid colors. We bought 2 of them. One was a tall orange pitcher. We moved that pitcher from old home to new home 5 times before it finally broke. That pitcher was the inspiration for the pitcher shown above. This pitcher is 13.5 inches high and about 4.5 inches wide at the widest point.

For the other potters reading this, notice the spout. I call it a potter's joke because the spout is the natural result of throwing a pot slightly off center. I didn't know that when we got that pitcher from Haeger Pottery but I recognize it now.
