This large cast-iron cauldron is designed according to the shape of the potjie, a cooking vessel that archaeologists have found throughout the world dating back to the Iron Age. The potjie has lasted until modern times because it is a pinnacle of iron cookware design. A deep, nearly spherical belly, horizontally ribbed, is supported by tripod legs, while a round lid fits neatly into the wide mouth.
At 15 inches high, 16 inches wide, and 55 pounds, this is a monumental piece that gives both soup and spell-work a stable vessel. It’s pure iron belly holds 7.5 gallons
