Details

This replica of a slip-decorated bowl, bowls of this style were very common during this period for cooking, serving and storing food. 

 Materials

Earthenware and glazed internally

 

Production

We have hand-made this replica pot in our studio in beautiful Northumberland based on an original artefact.  It has been to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, using the same techniques that the original potters employed.  This process often results in variations in surface colour and texture, emulating original ancient pottery and giving each pot its unique character.

 Health & Safety

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that ancient potters would have used during this era.  This is a partially glazed pot with some porous surfaces, and therefore, it will absorb the flavours of the food being stored or served, which adds to the flavour of future dishes.  However, it also means that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards, so we do not advise that it be used for storing or serving food.  When the ancient people used these vessels, they applied sufficient heat to the cooking pot and its contents to kill all bacteria.  Heating to over 70°C for at least 10 minutes would have killed most disease-causing bacteria, and temperatures of 100°C would do even more.
