Re-enactment and Historical Pottery by Kate Phillips

Over the past 20 years I have researched my love of ancient pottery, in particular the Anglo Saxon and Viking periods. Commissions have varied from bronze age beakers to Tudor candle sticks. I use various different clays to reflect different geographical areas and each pot has its own provenance. All my pottery supplied for re-enactment is designed to be used. I fire these to a much higher temperature than my potter ancestors were able to achieve resulting in far more hard-wearing pots. In addition I use modern food-safe glaze recipes and for hygienic purposes glaze the interior surfaces unless otherwise requested. Replica pottery for museum display is made as accurately as possible from historical reference research.
