For us here in Michigan, and especially in the rolling countryside of Baroda, the harvest season is marked by the arrival of fall colors: pumpkin orange, russet red, goldenrod yellow, and cinnamon brown. The nights get a little cooler (maybe a little snow starts flying too), and the fields offer up their plentiful harvest. The grain silos, hoppers, and corn cribs get filled to capacity to mark the end of another harvest season. The fields, which came alive for a few hectic days of harvesting, were returned to a state of rest for the winter months.
We asked our makers to consider what pots they would create for a large family dinner, to consider proportion, bounty, and how each piece can compliment a harvest dinner. Second, what colors come to mind when thinking about serving a harvest dinner? Depending on your geographical location this might vary dramatically between our makers– which we strongly encouraged them to explore. From casseroles and bakers to storage jars and crocks, this show has a the fixin's.
