The four platters are wheel thrown with high-fire B Mix. My designs make use of underglaze colours, stenciling and some tissue prints.

Historical Reproductions for Re-Enactment Groups
The following pieces are historical reproductions from the Saxo-Norman period. Historically, there were three main groups known as Saxo-Norman dating between c.700-1007. I was particularly interested in the last, more advanced group referred to as Stamford Ware (900-1100AD). The local clay was low iron and light or buff coloured. They are exceptional in that they are the first glazed pottery (lead-based glaze in the form of powdered galena) to be produced in England since Roman times.
