Kraichgau ceramics, reconstruction 13th Century
The earthenware of the early European medieval first showed marks of the
artificial work after the period of the Roman Empire, but formed its own
style at about the 8th Century (spherical forms). Potters threw simple pots
and hollow-ware for daily use and originated the design of domestic culture
A kiln out of the 12th century witnesses the use of special clay (from the
German region Rheinzabern) even after the Roman Empire.
Potters formed thin-walled and porous jars of short clay with light red
to grey colors.
This cup has been handmade true to original on the potter’s wheel. This is the
only way to give the copy the incomparable spiritedness of the original.
