An enquiry into the signifi cance of the ceramic vessel has led to an investigation
of its historical and contemporary social purposes. Daily use of this object to hold
substances essential to life connects it materially to the land and to the human
body. This connectivity has created tradition and led to ritual expression in many
parts of the world. The research analyses the manner in which individuals and
societies have imbued these vessels with memory: aiding memory, obscuring it,
telling stories, connecting people, embellishing tales and creating myths.
