the water pitcher
What will be the archeological finds of the future?
To view the collection
Will crumpled plastic bottles, tiny beads or a chemical slush be the artifact that will explain the technology and behavior of peoples of our own era? As it stands today, the estimated 160 billion plastic bottles, globally produced each year, will be and for thousands of years to come the most common vessel to be found in landfills or floating in our seas.
The long history of the ceramic water pitcher is pertinent today for tomorrow.
While strong in appearance, the hand-made Hydria pitcher is well balanced and light. Elongated, it takes less space in the kitchen or on the dining table. When using the bio-filter, the water is filtered by gravity - drip by drip - making a delightful sound.
Our resources are more precious than ever. Glazes are applied sparingly. It is just the right amount to prevent drips of water that perspire through the ceramic walls from staining a table. It is also just the right amount to tell a story about water in natural environments. Volcanic minerals and charcoals are expressed in the basalt, white engobbes, and textured glazes. Silver and platinum, known to have active anti-bacterial properties, represent crisp fresh waters.
" The challenge is to pollute less.
Now, let us see a shift in our habits."
