Holy Cow! (we said totally unironically when we saw these stunning dairy pitchers). Exquisite, elegant, classic, handmade porcelain pitchers are a dream for water, juice, or (perhaps our favorite application) for wild bouquets of just-picked blossoms. This makes even the humblest roadside blooms feel like a big deal. Substantially weighty while also not feeling heavy, this is easy to pick up and pour and solidly sturdy when filled with unwieldy top-heavy flowers. A treat for yourself or a very excellent present (if we do say so ourselves). 6 1/4" tall, 500ml/1/2l/~17oz
Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these pieces are 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.
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. Rejoice!
