Day 55: 100 Pots in 100 Days


So today I have been looking at Roman shapes.
The pots that I liked and I thought I would try to emulate? I went for a bowl with a shallow bottom and straight sides. This seems like quite a common shape and one that I have seen in my parents house. I have asked if we have a version in the SANHS/SWHT collections.
today I had a visitor come to view our Gallery and Studio for Somerset Art Weeks. The question they asked me was – When did slip ware first make an appearance. As I am seeing David Dawson (mazing man with an extensive knowledge of ceramics) and Amal (Curator for SWHT) if they know the answer.
Below is a picture of different Roman shapes ( . It was this picture that made me think of creating the bowl I threw today. The pot of the day today is below too. Hope you like them
