Michael C. Carlos Museum Trip

My wife has always wanted me to go to the Michael Carlos Museum at Emory ever since we met. We finally had the opportunity and made a date day out of it. They have the most amazing pottery exhibit featuring pottery from ancient North and South America. I would recommend a trip to the museum even if you are not interested in ancient pottery. There is a lot to see and exhibits change regularly.

The functional ware, specifically the seed pots really struck a chord with me that they were ornately decorated and expertly made to hold seeds from the current harvest until the next planting. They were used as storage through the fall and winter and then they were smashed in the spring to remove the seeds for planting.
