history lessons and reproducing an historical pot
My old pal Greg is interested in history, and reproducing some furniture items from 400 years ago. This painting shows a little pot made to hold hot stones or glowing coals in a foot stool, so that you could warm your feet. Pretty clever idea.
Greg asked if I could try to make this little pot, and you will see below that based on what I saw in the painting, I made a cool little copy. I am wondering about other historic items to reproduce.
