Kate Moss' History of Vomitorium Crockery
Apulian Red-Figured Vase Apulian Red-Figured Vase
(330-310 B.C.)

Made in the Apulia region of southern Italy, this colorful vase is a breathtaking example of the "ornate style" of vomitorium crockery. Noteworthy detail on this piece includes menacing Gorgon heads atop each handle - plus a moving depiction of Leda, Queen of Sparta, delicately purging her dinner of stuffed grape leaves.

Located in the entryway to my condominium, this vase holds 2.4 liters of vomit. Hairline fractures along its base demand it be promptly emptied after each use.
