    1. And we don't know if they were made as dolls or gods and goddesses! So glad they survived for us to wonder...

  2. These items show the permanence of clay, something I’m drawn to and the inspiration for the name Future Relics Pottery. Sometimes they were used as a form of communication. We may not really know what they are saying now but we can still see how beautiful they are.

    1. I love the name of your pottery, a thought that brings me to destroy some of my older awful pots that I wouldn't want to be known by when some archeologist of the future digs them up and says this was made in the toilet-bowl era (cause that's the most prevalent porcelain made these days)

  3. Such pieces are a link of shared humanity with those ancient cultures.
