Week 22: Ordinary Objects

Caltagirone has a long tradition of making ceramics. The town in southeastern Sicily offers many examples of local ceramic work, and the first to greet you are the relief tiles on the San Fransesco Bridge. Ceramic shops abound, and one of them we went into painted its own greenware. While the group was listening to the shopkeeper lecture on the ceramics process, I was drawn to the colorful paint pots the artisans use to paint the pottery. Ordinary objects, but to me, liquid jewels.
