Louisville, KY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
New themed pitchers, hand painted with touching details, are a nod to the upcoming season of lemonade, iced tea, and margaritas, each served cold and bearing the iconic MA Hadley name.
Introduced for spring and summer, Hadley Pottery’s new pitcher designs, dubbed its “Specialty Pitcher Collection” (http://hadleypottery.com/shop-by-item/specialty-pitchers - Stoneware Pitchers from Hadley Pottery), are created by Hadley Pottery artists and painted by hand at the company’s location in Louisville, KY.
“These artists, surrounded by the art of MA Hadley everyday, are inspired by her unique and iconic farm dishes and beach pottery and strive to create new pottery designs that are reminiscent of her design aesthetic,” said Andy Bresler, one of the owners of Hadley Pottery. “Lifetime collectors of Hadley pottery will find it easy to imagine that Mary Hadley created these new pitchers herself.”
The collection includes three new stoneware Lemonade Pitchers; an Iced Tea and a Sweet Tea Pitcher; and a southwest-style Margarita Pitcher. Both the Iced and Sweet Tea Pitchers include tea bag “tags” painted on the back of the pitchers, bearing MA Hadley’s well-known signature. The Margarita Pitcher has a smiling worm painted by hand on the bottom.

Now, just in time for spring and summer meals and entertaining, Hadley Pottery offers a series of specialty pitchers inspired by the artwork of its founder, Mary Alice Hadley.
This collection is part of the company’s ongoing initiative to refresh its line of hand made pottery designs to increase its appeal and usage with collectors, many who have collected Hadley Pottery tableware for decades and even several generations.
New pieces from the company typically generate lots of excitement among lifelong collectors, who have the opportunity to expand their collections beyond the company’s table top staples including stoneware plates, bowls, and mugs, and to enjoy the artwork of their favorite pottery artist for a new occasion or in another room of their homes.
