The Pithari

The Pithari is one of the many classics of Cretan pottery design and was used up until very recent times as a storage jar, especially for the family's olive oil.

Pitharia (the plural) make admirable indoor or outdoor planters - or their timeless design can be simply decorative.

A rather more unusual use is to fill an indoor Pithari with water in hot weather. This versatile porous pot will then act as a low-tech air-conditioning unit, because moisture will evaporate from all over its surface and help to keep Aussies cool!
