Replica of a ceramic vessel (bronze age)

About this object

The bowl in question has been made using the same techniques as the original. This would be by placing the wet unformed clay onto a potter's wheel and shaping it by hand. This evident when looking at the bowl as one of the indents has clearly been made by a human thumb. The bowl could be either East Anglia type or Northumberland.
