The hand-made clay olive oil pitcher (it's probably actually called something else...?) is one I bought at an art show this spring. I love the smooth feel and shape that it has. I named this piece "In The Beginning" because everyone knows that if you start any dish with some good extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, and lots of garlic, you just can't go wrong!
It took me two days, and multiple frustrating attempts, to get a photo of this that looked even half way decent. I have a terrible time getting a good shot of darker paintings. Sorry!
