elephant pitchers: its a trunk thing.....

(new elephant pitchers by Gary Rith)

OK, you have seen me make the cups....the sugar bowl, teapot and creamer too.  Not a huge leap to make an elephant pitcher, right?

As you see, I am trying 2 styles--one has a closed top/head, the other open.  I surprise myself:  I kinda prefer the open top.  You could easily stick flowers in there, too....

They are so snouty! New adjective, means wonderful in the probiscis department! I also vote for topless.

Lori Buff said...

These are adorable. I agree, I like the open top better.

I like them both. Is that too wishy-washy? But if I were buying I would want one of each.
Barb's adjective is totally appropriate! SNOUTY indeed!

So cute! I agree about the open top. Makes it easier to fill too.
