    They're called pipkins and some Michigan artists want to teach you all about them.
    A pipkin is an earthenware cooking pot used for cooking over direct heat from coals or a wood fire. They date back to medieval times and are still used today.
    A new festival of ceramic arts and delicious food will be celebrating the heritage of this unique handmade cookware the weekend of July 19 and 20. 
    You need to register for the fun, which is happening in Midtown's Sugar Hill District at 71 Garfield, Detroit.
    You'll find full details here or you can call Sugar Hill Clay at 313-831-6100.
