I found this treasure at an estate sale of a house filled with beautiful earthy pottery. This frying pan is hand thrown by a potter named Terry Silverman in New Hampshire who makes pottery that can be cooked in on direct heat. As can be seen on the bottom, this pan has been used for what it was made for! The bottom is also stamped by the artist.
This pan measures 9 1/2 inches across and has spouts on both sides for pouring. There is also a lug on the side opposite of the handle to help grip when pouring.
Beautiful and earthy and practical. When I am looking for treasure at estate sales and flea markets, I only purchase what I love myself. So inevitably I have a hard time letting it go. This is especially true with this pan. I have had it in my studio for months, just admiring its earthy beauty.
