Ancient Roman Terra Sigillata Medusa Lamp

Regular price €36,00 EUR

About

With an impressive medusa relief, this amazing reproduction of Ancient Roman Terra Sigillata is handcrafted following a unique process whereby the wet clay is finely selected by decantation. Usually this process needs 20 hours of watch, and several decantations can follow until a high volume of the initial clay is cast aside - obtaining the purest clay yield as a result.

This pottery has a special natural gloss and softness achieved by the selection of fine particules and a completely natural slip (instead of an industrial glaze, this poterry has an outer layer made of a secret mix of clay and minerals found by trial-and-error approach that melts only at specific conditions of temperature and humidity, temperature curves ranging 1000°C-800°C).

Historians believe that many terra sigillata production centers where located at natural river clay banks where water currents were doing part of the job of decantation. The Romans were taking advantage of few of these special locations all around the empire to mass produce this precious pottery work. Fine Terra Sigillata with reliefs was a valuable symbol of social status associated with the upper class.

By virtue of the authentic process mastered by our artisan, we can guarantee that an archaeologist will be unable to distinguish this piece from an original Roman Terra Sigillata.
