    what is this thing? maybe if it had a cork in the top it could be a birdhouse. deeply incised and filled with a different color slip or something? kind of looks Greek or Mediterranean, maybe? it's pretty large - 8 inches tall by 9 inches wide.

      thank you Zilla! that is so cool! as soon as i started listening to your link, i ran out and got my udu - and then i figured out it's actually a water udu! the sound is amazing when there's water in it. thanks so much for solving this one! i love the solution!

      I’ve seen someone in Australia making ceramic drums, and I thought of that when I saw your drum. I think they originated from the Igbo people of Nigeria. I’d love to hear what yours sounds like! I love the decoration on yours. It doesn’t look glazed, is that right?
    6. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 4 years ago
      that's right Zilla - it's not glazed, but it has a really interesting inlay of a different color clay for the decoration. it's a beautiful piece of pottery and it sounds amazing! i like to play it while reading emails. it sounds really cool w/ water and without it too.
