Details
This rather elegant bowl is based on an example excavated from the magnificent Hadrian’s Wall, in the heart of Northumberland.  This style of bowl would have been used to serve all manner of Roman delicacy, and, although not considered high statues at the time, it would have added a touch of class to any meal.  The Romans really did know a thing or two about beautiful objects. 

 Materials

Terracotta clay , fired under reduction conditions

Dimensions

Approx. 120 mm tall, 250 mm diameter

Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been wood fired in an authentic replica of a Roman Pottery Kiln at Vindolanda Museum, to a temperature of between 8000 & 1000 Centigrade, using the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, emulating original Roman Pottery and giving each pot it's unique character.
