Janet Rothwoman Pitcher

Rothwoman Cow Pitcher
I was digging around in the back of my linen closet last week when I unearthed this amazing pitcher.
I had totally forgotten all about it, and it was still wrapped in newspaper from our move to CA.
I started doing a little research online and realized the pitcher was made by 
CA pottery artist Janet Rothwoman.
Janet Rothwoman Signature
 I haven't been able to fine much about her from a biography standpoint, but several examples of her work can be found on worthpoint & previous art pottery auctions.
There is beautiful hand painted detail on both the front & back of the vessel, and I truly love the shape & weight of the piece.

Beautifully painted on both sides
I hate to admit that I just stuck this beauty back into the closet...but I'm debating sharing the love with someone who may appreciate it more so you may see it listed in my Etsy shop soon.
