  • These coil pots with head stoppers were my take on Egyptian canopic jars. The pots are stained and salt fired to cone ten; they have a running bottle ash glaze around the necks. Canopic Jars are traditionally used to preserve the viscera of the owner for the after life. I relate this to the idea of birth and rebirth, the women being vessels for the life of various cultures.
