Fish are an important motif in Chinese mythology, with various myths surrounding fish and aquatic life. The word for "fish", yu is a homophone for "abundance" and "affluence". This beautiful colorful earthenware pitcher is a wonderful blend of playful and sophisticated. Organic in form, this pitcher is handcrafted with care and heavy weighted. It is formed into a subtly imperfect shape and texture, creating a one of a kind result. There is a subtle hand-antiquing and distressing on the freeform rim of the pitcher. The playful hand painted fish add a perfect pop of color.
