J = Jars



RG Pottery

RG Pottery

These jars were from RG Pottery in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. They are called "burnay" in Ilocano dialect, which means clay jars. Each of these jars are handmade and is a very big product of the city. These images were taken last November, during my last visit to the place.
