The question, “Where are you from?” is a difficult one for me to answer wholeheartedly. Anyone who was forced to move when they were younger understands the dilemma of being asked about your hometown. The word hometown can have a variety of meanings to people. Merriam-Webster defines a hometown as, “the city or town where you were born or grew up,” but to me a hometown is the place where you have the greatest memories. For this reason, I am unable to claim just one place as my hometown. The two places that immediately come to mind when I think of my hometown are Davenport, Washington and Rathdrum, Idaho.
Home is a dwelling where people unwind, mature, and can safely reside. Coates, Andreou, and Owen see home as a material structure and are chiefly concerned and focused on the importance of access to home. On the other hand, Shammas, Iyers, and De Botton view the abstract concept of home, which emphasizes that home, is about creating feelings and memories. Home is not a material place where it can be several different places and have no meaning. Home is a place where you create fond memories, feelings, and grow with the culture.
Pottery is very beneficial and advantageous to archaeologists as it is a very common and widespread product that leads us to have a greater understanding about the everyday life of the area inhabitants. “Pottery is one of the most common artefacts in ancient sites. Once broken, unlike glass and metal, it cannot be recycled. This makes it very useful to archaeologists,” said Pont. Pont made the conclusion that the red slip pottery was used by the Pompeian’s as tableware with the main purpose of serving food and drink given its characteristically glossy surface. By dipping ceramics in liquid clay and later firing it in an oxygenating kiln is how this gloss is created (Kalnins, 2004) (see figure
The goal of this report was to bring awareness to the problems that Perfect Pottery has fallen victim to from the recent, drastic change of moving to the United States. This article is aimed at bringing ideas to the table that would solve many of the situations and difficulties that came with that recent transition.
When you hear the word home, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the place where you were raised, or where you’re currently residing? Do you think of something more emotional such as a person that you are most comfortable with, perhaps even yourself? Different people have different definitions of the word home. Homer uses it in a more literal way in his epic poem “The Odyssey” and Oliver used the word in a more spiritual way in her poem “The Journey”. “The Odyssey” by Homer was written back in the 8th century BC as a follow up of Homer's first epic poem “The Iliad”. The story follows King Odysseus of Ithaca and his men on their journey home from the Trojan war. “The Journey” written by Mary Oliver presents the journey of one
According to the LMA, the West End location offered many advantages. One of the advantages is that the location is elevated. It sits higher than the Capitol building , which shows the prestige of their idol Robert E. Lee. This site was also built on the area where Richmond was slowly expanding its city limits too. The LMA also noted that this area if annexed by Richmond would accumulate around $4,000 more in tax revenue. This played a major factor in Richmond’s government being in favor of the monument’s location. However, the LMA needed a few more years to finish the construction of the monument and needed to make sure they would secure the site. Finally, on October 27, 1887, a parade filled with former Confederates headed west from downtown to conduct a cornerstone dedicatory ceremony at the intended site . The creation of this site made Monument Ave a site where people flocked too. Between 1900-1925 people who owned land in the area began to expect great capital from selling property or building their own houses. This gave the street an extra ramp up in popularity. But in years to come, the contents of this street would become highly controversial.
When home comes to mind I think of my home town, so small it can’t even be considered a town, Matawan, New Jersey. As a kid when I would say where I was from people would automatically look at me with a bewildered face and ask “Where is that?”. Being in a small town there has been some advantages like knowing everyone in my around two hundred and seventy person graduating class. Playing sports in a small town allowed me to develop friendships from a young age that will last a lifetime. By growing up in a small town and a small school, there was a definite sense of community. I remember when a classmate was diagnosed with cancer our small school rallied together and organized multiple fundraisers to try and pay for a treatment in Germany for
Although I grew up in Lemont, Illinois, I’d have to say my home is definitely Chicago. Lemont is about thirty minutes outside of the city, so I’d say I’m close enough to call the Windy City my home. I come from a pretty normal family, the typical mom, dad, sisters; nothing too out of the ordinary. My family, including extended family are all involved in some sort of business-related career, and I think that has influenced me in part of who I am.
When growing up as a small child everyone remember where they grew up. They also remember what the town looks like, what to do, and where does everyone hangout at. I grew up in a small town in Southeastern Indiana called Greensburg. In this small town has some to do but not very much. Once someone visits Greensburg they will not forget the historical places and all the factories. When growing up here everyone knows everyone in some way. One thing I will never forget and remember for the rest of my life is where I grew up.
A hometown is exactly what it sounds like — a home. Home is what makes us who we are, either individually from personal experiences or collectively from shared phenomenons. My hometown instilled within me two major value sets. One, a burden for service, which comes from a broken heartedness towards a community which needs help, and another, a belief in family, which comes from both my actual family and from the small family-like community which I grew up in. These roots of myself are by far of the greatest significance of who I am,

On a March day in 1926, a Daily Sketch newspaper reporter called on the Vyses at Cheyne Row. He wanted to interview Vyse for an article of general interest. The excellence of the Vyses’ high-fired stoneware, decorated with wood-ash glazes were subject to popular press examination in an article titled, The Secret the Chinese Kept.28 The article is of interest to students of ceramic history, in that it validates the Vyses’ commitment to stoneware pottery. Furthermore, it verifies the passionate research work carried out by the Vyses in tandem with their figure making output. The interview it appears, was copied down by the reporter verbatim, the following paragraphs are selection from the published article.
The word ‘home’ is something that is often misunderstood. Home makes up your identity and not many people know that. Therefore you ask me, ‘what is home?’ Home is not just in your house. Home is a place that surrounds you. It’s you environment and cause for emotions. Your home is where you are with the people that surround you (peers, family, and strangers), as well as cars, houses, stores, and/or toys.
What is home? If one looks in a dictionary the answer would come out to be, “The place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.” However, for anyone who has had an actual home, they would know that such a term goes much beyond its concrete description. It is an impassioned aspect filled with values and foundation of nurturing. A home is not just an abode built to live in; in fact, that is just a definition of a house. Home is a place where one not only feels comfortable, but a place they look forward to opportunely live in every day. A home is built not by bricks or wood, but with the bond of family. A home is a place that reminds a person of countless memories and values when he walks through a
