Vesselssquare

The Museum is pleased to present the newest exhibition of vessels from its own Permanent Collection. This collection will be on view through June 19, 2016.

From ancient bowls and storage jars to contemporary folk and studio pottery, vessels provide insight into ancient civilizations and document the unquenchable human creative spirit. Once humans discovered that clay could be dug up and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, the vessel was born. As early as 24,000 BC, ceremonial vessels were created; and by 10,000 BC, functional vessels were used for food and water storage. Throughout history, vessels have continued to serve a wide variety of ceremonial, functional, and decorative purposes.
