Experimental archaeology 8: Dr Cleal the Potter part two

Posted by Picasa
Ros looks as though she is feeling her way gingerly around the edge of this pot searching for any cracks or weaknesses in the rim before consigning the pots to firing. There appears to be more than one episode of potting: this photograph was taken by Phil, but when you compare it with the picture which I posted some months ago taken by Dr Phillpotts she's wearing different clothes.  Then again she is wearing the same clothes as she is in the Dixon photograph in this other Phillpotts shot.  Perhaps Dr Cleal can remember whether there was more than one potting episode in 1988 or 1989, - whichever year it was - or whether she did a quick change during the course of the day?
