Black Bird & Autumn Pottery Ceramic Maple Syrup Leaf Pitcher

shhhhh....can you hear them?
Those tiny little twittering voices in the early morning light.....
It's 4 Red-Winged Black Birds calling to us from the Tree branches surrounded by the Glorious Autumnal Leaves. Such a soft and lovely sound and a reminder to be still and listen to the wondrous sounds of nature....all year round. :)

This Exceptional Pitcher measures 7 3/4" tall by 5 1/4" across by 2 3/4" deep. It holds a generous 24 ounces of Maple Syrup, Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, etc!!

I Most Definitely had an idea in mind about what I wanted to paint when making this Pitcher from the Clay and so I created the spout and added the handle with the "Birds in the Autumn Tree" Design as my guide. 3 Red Winged Black Birds, resting amidst 6 Large Glorious Autumn Maple Leaves with the trunk of the tree forming the handle and all of it painted with 3 coats of colored glazes in order to achieve the brilliant colors you see on the finished piece. I even painted a Gorgeous Rusty Orange on the inside of the spout to "match" the Leaves on the main body of the piece. I titled it "CHERRY BLOSSOMS AND LITTLE BLUE WINGS", signed and dated it on the bottom and applied 2 coats of clear glaze, then fired it again to cone 06.

I made the Awesome Stopper specifically for this piece and shaped it like a Black Bird and then painted it with 3 coats of glazes and fired it as well. It will sit either way in the mouth of the spout, so that you can have it looking forward or backward, it's up to you....How FUN!! :)
It measures 3" long by 2 1/4" wide by almost 1" deep.

*´♥.•´♥.•YES!! That Cute Little Glass Leaf "bottle" filled with REAL Maple Syrup you see in the Photos is included with this Wondrous Pitcher...YAY!!! :)
*´♥.•NOTE ~ Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are NOT a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This Glorious Pitcher can be used for Maple Syrup or as an Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar Cruet. It could hold Cream for Coffee or Tea service, and it will look Stunning just sitting on your kitchen counter or dining room table when not in use. Would also be a thoughtful and beautiful gift for any Bird or "Autumn" Lover......or Fall Wedding!! YAY!! :)
