This is a fabulous old Handmade Clay Incised Relief Designed Food Storage or Cooking Bowl from the Abelam People of the Sepik River Region of Papua New Guinea. These diverse tribal people maintain some of the most unusual and distinctive ceramic traditions found anywhere in the world. New Guinea ceramists gather clay in the hills or swamps surrounding their villages and form it into wares that range from superbly functional cooking and storage pots to highly esoteric sacred figures. In Papua New Guinea both men and women make ceramics, depending on the region, cultural group, and techniques involved. In many coastal communities women specialize in making thin-walled, round-bodied cooking pots, often beating the clay into shape over a stone. Where designs are painted on the objects after firing, this is done by men. No potter’s wheels or glazes are used. Quick low-temperature firing under piles of burning brush transforms the clay into porous earthenware. This would be a wonderful item to add to your collection or home.
