Description : This massive red, iron pot has ridges running horizontally at intervals around the outside of the pot. It has two ear-like handles directly across from each other, near the top of the pot. The pot has a rounded bottom and flares outwards at the top. It rests on three feet, and it can hold 80 gallons.
Commentaires : The process of barking usually occurred on the beach. It was often done in April or May to prepare for the busy fishing season. Others barked their nets in the fall at the end of the fishing season, to preserve them over the winter and have them ready for next spring. Some people washed their nets in fresh water prior to barking to remove the salt from them. To bark their nets, fishermen would boil spruce or fir buds in the bark pot. Some pots, like this one, stood on three legs, while others were suspended over a fire by chains on a makeshift wooden frame. Fishermen would then put their nets into the boiled mixture to soak. After soaking, the nets would be spread out to dry on fences or rocks. This process was usually repeated annually. In many communities, not everyone had a bark pot, but there were usually a number of them in the community that were available for all to use. Sometimes a kerosene drum or a tub made from half a flour barrel was used instead of a bark pot. Generally, bark pots were 3 to 4 feet in diameter and 2 to 3 feet deep, so this particular example is a fairly common size.
Fonctions : Bark pots were used by fishermen to soak their nets, twine, and sometimes sails, in a spruce bud mixture, which would preserve the nets against rot. Some also felt that barking made twine less visible to the fish.
