Inspiration Monday – January 18, 2010


Does this look familiar?  Years ago, when I first started playing with my Turkish inspired “tulip vases”, I was struggling with the handle and the balance of the form.  I then found myself in Chicago with my hubby and we went to the Art Institute.  One of the most wonderful museums I’ve ever been to.  That is where I saw this silver pitcher designed by Oscar Riedacher and made by Tiffany.  While I have never been able to get the fine curve of the handle or the balance with the spout, I return to this image often.  This pitcher has become my ideal of this form.
