This exquisite handmade porcelain pitcher is the exact right size for cream, warmed maple syrup, or (perhaps our favorite application) a wild bouquet of just-picked blossoms. Perfectly weighty, this feels substantial without being heavy.
Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, this handle-less pitcher is fully finished with an extremely hard, high-gloss clear glaze. The almost luminous soft white color? That's the all-natural hue of the porcelain itself. It woke up like this. And then it made you coffee.
About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love—it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
