A Celebration of Ancient Pots – Kate Phillips recent work

In 2003 following contact with Paul Binns, a blacksmith who makes replica Viking armoury, Kate started researching historic pots. At first she concentrated on the Viking era in the UK but subsequently has widened her interest and knowledge to pots from the 6th to the 16th centuries. Kate’s pots are shipped all over the
world and are used by re-enactors of various periods.

Latterly her expertise has been recognised by museum services in East Anglia where she has run demonstration and activity days and has welcomed commissions to reproduce historical pots for handling or display. Her recent exhibition at Greyfriars Art Space  – ‘A Celebration of Historical Pots’  featured many of the different types of pots she makes. It will opens daily 10am to 4.30pm until 30th October 2011.

Examples of her work is shown below for those who were unable to get to the exhibition.  See her pages on this website if you wish to contact her to talk about buying or displaying her work.
