Does anybody know anyone who’s really up on early medieval (6th-7th
century) ceramic techniques in Northern Europe?
In my snail-like quest to figure out how the garnets for Migration
Period jewelry were cut, I have some ideas for a way to do it, but
they’re based on my (vague) knowledge of ceramic techniques and
technology. What I don’t know is what was possible in period, in
the area, or exactly how they would have gone about doing it. Which
influences whether or not my hypothetical modified technique would
even have been possible for them.
So I’m looking for somebody who’d be willing to answer a few
technical questions about techniques and equipment. We’re all
interesting people, we all have interesting friends. I’m hoping one
of them is a ceramics geek…
