|I like the way the decoration emphasizes the handle shape.|
I spent an entire day at the Met in New York and took dozens of photos of pots...mostly looking at handles. I'll post more as the week goes by. If you read the literature that the Met provides, you would wonder if there were many pots at all. In fact, there are thousands of amazing pots in every nook and cranny of that spectacular building.
|How cool to make a double handle an animal head!|
There are pots there that I've seen in books for years with plenty of room for them to be examined. It's always awe-inspiring to be reminded of how much the history of humankind is told through ceramic objects.

These double handled pots are huge...5'-6' tall and 4' wide. Maybe bigger. In fact, there were lots of huge pots made thousands of years ago. The technology is fantastic to produce such beauties...long before cones and burners and store bought materials, potters were true masters.
