Reproduction Pottery

I scored some gorgeous pottery over 12th Night. The redware is by Jeanne C. Wood. The surface is terra sigilata, a very fine, polished slip. It covers the clay underneath and is semi-waterproof. The indented cups and the Pompeiian oil lamp are by Reannag Teine.

Sadly, immediately after taking these pictures – before I had a chance to use it – I broke the adorable little pitcher. 😦 That reminded me I never posted pictures of the awesome pitcher Mercy Neumark made for me last summer! The original, left, and mine, on right, with a Reannag Teine cup.
