This stoneware pitcher was created for a show at Vessel Gallery in Philadelphia. The show, "Double Vision" was with my former studio mate Lorin Klein Costolo from Lillstreet in Chicago. I created this piece at Riverrun Center in Mc Naughton, Wisconsin while I was working as the "Live-In" Apprentice. It is one of my first successful pieces fired at cone 6 in an electric kiln. Although this is how I fire today, at the time it was traumatic to move from high fire reduction to mid-range oxidation.
