Roman Spherical Cup from Clay, Terra Sigillata.
This cup has been produced in long and complex procedures of handcraft
in Germany and now shows an enjoyable contrast to many of the imported
and machine-made products on the market. The quality, the accuracy and
the pleasure of manufacturing in traditional kind and in copying true
to original, are visible and convincing.
Clay from the German region Rheinzabern with the aid of slip builds the
rough material for this high-class product. The clay is prepared in old
Roman style without the use of filter-presses. After the preparation the
clay is thrown on the potter’s wheel or is turned in form bowls.
At the status of being leathery the pieces are decorated in a typical way.
