i wish i made it…

Dripping Dish; Late Medieval Hertfordshire

Dripping Dish; Late Medieval Hertfordshire

I went pokin around the intertubes lookin for something i wish i made and came up with this.  I must admit it caught my eye because I thought the thumbnail caption said ‘dripping fish’ which really captured my imagination.

What I really like about this pot is its casual specificity.  There really isn’t a heck of a lot you could do with this pot except catch fat, and the patina shows it must have done its job.  The transitions from floor-to wall-to lip are very appealing and the slightest indication of a pouring edge on the left is so barely enough.

I don’t see a need to catch fat any time soon, but

i wish i made it…

    Wow, I wonder how that handle attached. Cool greasy pot. I also wonder what it smells like?
