Image of Brocca Bombo

Bombo is a ceramic jug for transport, storage and delivery of water. Inspired by an ancient earthenware jug known the term Bummulu, an object strongly linked to the farmer of a time when the world was produced by master potters to carry water from the villages to the countryside, at the dawn of long hot workdays. Fell into disuse is then re-interpreted on popular initiative and converted into a musical instrument (south Italy). The project aims to restore the original use in what may be called an icon of past rural life, offering a contemporary reinterpretation. The shape of Bombo jug is that of a drop, it can hold up to three and an half liters of water, is easy to carry, the pretty yet functional form gives a note of cheer to the table and the outside areas of the house.
