  1. Hello All, Wondering if anyone could give me a clue on this...a friend of mine who grew up in Mexico wants me to make her an unglazed pitcher to store/purify water. She explained that is has to be porous, lidded, with a small spout and a catch basin or collecting water at the base. She says that a grandmother used one to purify (or perhaps cool?) water. I've googled the concept with little success. Found some interesting info on mid-eastern cultures using this concept to keep food cool and rugged off-the-grid types using a terracotta filtration system (unglazed cylinder in a bucket), but no pitchers as my friend describes. I'm going to try to give it a shot, but I'm just guessing basically. Anyone heard of ANYTHING like this or have any tips? Thanks, and stay muddy!
