Featured Item of the Week: Terra Cotta Olive Oil Jars

According to Eye of the Day, "olive oil jars are one of the classics of Greek pottery design and is still used as storage, especially in Greek homes to store the family olive oil.  In ancient Minoan culture, both liquids and cereals were stored in these large terra cotta pots, but they were also used as low-tech air conditioners by filling them with water in hot weather which would then evaporate, causing a cooling effect."
