A ceramic pitcher, designed by Inge Forø and handmade at Larholm, Norway, circa 1950. 

The spouted form of this vessel is both soft and geometric, both ancient and modern. The simple, essential shape of the piece along with the attention to both practicality and aesthetics, signifies the designers' awareness of the emerging Scandinavian Modernist movement at the time. 

The sturdy stoneware pitcher features a leaf green glaze which has been applied with a brush. A subtle texture has been hatched with a tool beneath the glaze, to offer a nuance which heightens the perception of a lovingly handmade object.

Forø's was artistic director at Larholm (1943 - 1951) when he designed this piece. It was made in yellow as well as green and the example held in The National Museum of Norway features a cane grip.
