Snake Rebecca Pitcher by Eric Canty

This modern Rebecca pitcher was created by Catawba Master Potter, Eric Canty. This one-of-a-kind pitcher has a beautifully formed snake wrapped around the entire piece, making it more original. The gorgeous shades of dark brown and tan that accent the piece are results of the traditional firing technique the Catawba tribe has used since before European contact.
