Ancient Pottery Replicas - if you don't see what you're looking for please ask
Extensive research and over thirty years of potting experience, combined with; careful selection of materials, purpose made tools and the recreation of ancient firing conditions, result in pots which are as close to the originals as possible.
Recent projects have included all the replica pottery for the Stonehenge Visitor Centre, for Dr Michael Scott's "Who Were The Greeks" on BBC2 and a display of Roman Amphorae and pots for the Southampton Sea City Museum.
My reproductions have been used for Museum Displays, Handling Collections, University and School Teaching Aids, re-enactment, LARP, Gifts and Presentations, Stage and TV Props and Interior Design. My pots are always based on actual examples and can be reproductions of specific items in you own collection. I can create informed reconstructions based on fragmentary examples. I begin the process by examining the original piece and then try to reproduce the clay body, make reproductions of the tools which were used and, once the item is made, I attempt to recreate the exact firing conditions employed for the original.
I do carry a stock of generic pots from various periods but most of my pottery is made to order, so if you need a specific item please ask. Prices vary according to research requirements and complexity.
