I’ve been reading about pottery, especially the forms of oil lamps.
Several excellent books on this subject are: Byzantine Pottery by Ken Dark, Signs and Mysteries Revealing Ancient Christian Symbols by Mike Aquilina, and Lighting in Early Byzantium by Laskarina Bouras and Maria G. Parani.
I’m eager to find time and space to re-create some basic oil lamps for an A&S display. This is going to take some doing as at the moment I have nowhere to work clay and no kiln. The later may be possible locally but the workspace is a problem.
This is my second post on this blog, and I am still working out what themes I will use. So far, the one I like best does not have anywhere for the login button to show!
