We are intently interested in pottery throughout antiquity, from the earliest functional-ware to the classic forms of the Mediterranean civilisations. Through the medium of clay we feel a direct connection to a ‘family tree’ of potters stretching back through human history.  Our unique Roman 'Lady' jugs are each named after individual women of the Republic or Empire.

Artemidorus of Cnidus: A Greek philosopher who, according to Plutarch, had learned details of the plot from Brutus, handed Caesar a scroll disclosing the conspiracy against him as Caesar made his way to the theatre, urging him to read it immediately. Caesar was unable to do so, due to the jostling of the crowds, but reputedly carried it with him as he ascended the steps of the theatre to his doom.
