This clay pot was made in Fayoum, Egypt. I was lucky enough to find such a unique vessel at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C., Georgetown, to be more exact. Because it’s not glazed, I’d probably use a sleeve if you wanted to do a fresh arrangement. Instead I put Blackbeard Reeds to complement as well as contrast the sandy vessel likened to those found in the Pharaohs’ tombs. This would be a great office gift.
Hint: Cut reeds in half and put the bottom half in the vase to support the top half.
