The Jar is legendary. Among the pantheon of ceramic vessels this form is surely the most potent. From Minoan Pithoi to the mighty Tamba wares of Japan, cool Nigerian water pots to the enigmatic Korean ‘Moon’ jar, this form stands emblematic of enduring ‘pot-hood’ and occupies a powerful place in the collective ceramic psyche. In our age, allergic to ambiguity and mystery, the jar is a bastion of aesthetic gravitas.
