Luna pitcher set brings attention the personal relationship we have when drinking. Made from slip casted stoneware, and sanded to a smooth finish, the vessel is soft to the touch.  The opaque body of the pitcher and the cup stands as a soft contrast to the gentle column of water that pours between. Holding the vessel it feels natural, sitting perfectly caressed in the palm of your hand. As if you were gesturing for a cup of water in the air and the pitcher appeared to replace the void. A solid silhouette it is undoubtedly recognized as a pitcher and cup. Yet formally it communicates a sense of softness that perhaps suggests the pureness of water.
