Recovered Amphora

Yasi Ada, Turkey

These amphora are seeing their first sunlight in 1,300 years. They can hold about 20+ liters and were used to transport various free flowing materials such as wine, olive oil and the like. We used some of the better preserved ones to hold water since the porosity of the material allowed a small amount of seepage through the side and the evaporation then kept the water cool.

other sizes: small medium large original auto
