Details This is a Museum Quality Replica of a Anglo Saxon Pottery Buckelurne dating from the 5th/6th Century AD. It is in the Germanic style and burnished to produce a shine that enhances the stunning blackening created during smoke firing. The decoration of lines have been carefully hand modelled just as the original potter would have done. The original urn is on display in the British Museum.
Smoke fired terracotta
Approx. 250mm tall 180mm diameter
As with all my Museum Quality Replicas, I try to work in a way that is as close as possible to the methods used by the ancient craftsmen and women who created the original. This pot has been made entirely hand using natural materials and tools that are replicas of those used by the original maker. It has been wood fired in direct contact with the fuel to achieve an authentic finish, in this case it has been smothered in fuel towards the end of the firing, starving it of oxygen and giving it the characteristic black finish. Finally it has been sealed with beeswax.
