Zir is a Nubian word for a water storage amphorae that is traditionally seen in pairs. These skillfully designed vessels were made of semi-porous clay with a wide belly and tapered bottom, keeping water cool in the high desert temperatures.

Beyond its function, the Zir is a symbol of Nubian generosity as they were placed outside of homes for passer-bys and travelers to quench their thirst.

The Zir Vessel is sturdy enough to be carried by the handle.

Made by Nur Ceramics in Brooklyn, NY.
