"A Pink glaze is hard. To make the color work, we pulled out all of the stops and the color we came up with is, in my opinion, perfect. It basically forces you to pick it up and feel it in your hands. The touchstones we talked about most were from the natural world- flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata) native to eastern NC. This glaze is something to behold, and best viewed in person. And even if you aren’t a “pink person”, I bet you will like this color, too. It’s not a trendy shade of pink, it’s one that you will look in style decades from now. The name, Buttermilk Pink, is all Vivian, and like any good color name, it’s almost a haiku- I imagine a fresh pail of milk catching the reflected pink of sunrise and a farmer pausing to reflect on the beautiful way a quotidian thing can become sublime and extraordinary in the right light."
"I love the way it changes in the light. In some cases, it's this deep pink. In others, it's more of what I like to call buttermilk pink. It's so subtle. It's so neutral that it will look good in any kitchen."
