Celebrating The Vessel

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Give thanks to the vessel. The ceramic vessel has been the container of life since the beginning of time.  Throughout history, it holds the water and grains for people to live.  Water and foods are contained and
   stored to give to people, livestock, and grow the fields of fruit, vegetables, and grain.  The vessels are
  used in ceremony for Japanese raku tea ceremonies, babies’ baptims’, and to contain the ashes of are deceased- urns.
