Four White Pitchers by ceramicist Nicola Tassie is a still life set of four thrown jugs, inspired by Nicola’s fascination with the paintings of the Italian artist Morandi. Based on Morandi’s extravagant painting of a large enamel jug with flared cup head and looping handle, this still life set brings Nicola’s version of that jug into the foreground, bathing it in light while evoking a softness and liquidity to mirror the tone of the paintings.
