The Pottery

We asked Andrew MacDonald (below) of the Pot Shop, Lincoln, to create the replica medieval pottery used in the Luttrell Psalter Film. Andrew is a specialist potter who creates Prehistoric, Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Post medieval and Maiolica pots as well as his own designs.


There are a number of green-glazed and un-glazed pots included in the Luttrell Psalter illustrations. Using these images, fragments of pottery that we had found on the deserted medieval village site and other known finds from Lincolnshire, Andrew recreated the pots we required to recreate some of the iconic images from the Psalter.


One of the pot sherds, from the site of the deserted medieval village provided inspiration for one of the pots used in the film (sherd and completed pot pictured below):



Andrew MacDonald’s The Pot Shop (brick building pictured below), can be found just off Steep Hill, at Harding House, Christ’s Hospital Terrace, Lincoln. 01522 528994
