Egyptian Vase

Clay pot with stand and reed

Clay pot with stand and reeds

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.
