Drift pot

The sea has such a wonderfully rounding effect on all sorts of materials. We (my wife and I) rather think it has done a good job on this bit of pot. It is smoothed and curved off so beautifully.

This suggests some kind of food mixing bowl and judging by the gentle curve it was quite big.

Perhaps it could have been like our Littlethorpe Pottery bread mixing bowl.

Our fragment was picked up on an Isle of Wight beach near Bembridge.

As they say, ‘simple things suit simple minds!’
