Pottery has been around since the Neolithic, more than 7000 years ago. For a long time this was formed by hand and no turntable was involved. Various techniques were used to make pots by hand, such as by joining rolls or sheets of clay together. In every period and every culture, the pottery had specific characteristics.
Typical decoration techniques are the application of, for example, finger impressions, grooves or a coarse surface, in which blobs of clay have been applied.
In our collection we have included various objects that, in their design or appearance of the surface, refer to handmade pottery that existed for a long time.
