Kraichgau ceramics, reconstruction 13th Century
The earthenware of the early European medieval times 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 in medieval times. A kiln out of the 12th century witnesses the use of special clay (from the German region Rheinzabern) enafter the Roman Empire. Potters formed thin-walled and porous jars of short clay with light red to grey colors. This crock 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.
