Details
Grey ware is a common find from Romano-Britain, with sherd finds spanning the length and breadth of  Mainland Britain.  Functional items such as these replica Roman Cups were extremely popular, and, beautifully crafted.  Each of these cups has been wheel thrown, just as the original potters would have done. They have then been fired in our kiln at Vindolanda.  You can’t get more authentic than that.   

 Materials

Terracotta clay , fired under reduction conditions

Dimensions

Approx. 160 mm tall, 90 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.
