I have started looking at simple clay utilitarian vessels from Ancients cultures in a refreshing new light. Once these pots seem basic and elegant but pale next to polychrome and carved vessels that you see in Museum collections. When I think how these classic smooth and monochrome bowls and pots were used daily they come to life. They are rarely ritualistic but favorite cooking and serving dishes of ancient families. This blog is created to share discoveries cooking with clay vessels from around the world.
