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 delicacies, and although not considered high status 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. 115 mm tall, 170 mm diameter

 Production

We have hand-made this replica Roman pot in our studio in beautiful Northumberland and 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 800 & 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 its unique character.

 Health & Safety

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that Roman potters would have used during the Roman era. This is an unglazed pot with a porous surface, 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 Romans 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.
