the third session of
European Cooking from Rome to the Renaissance
June 18-19, 2005
Our honored guest at the conference was John Hudson, Claypotter. A long term member of the Medieval Pottery Research Group, John Hudson produces reproduction pottery for museums and large houses throughout England. Most of the pottery used in the kitchen areas of Hampton Court Palace, London have been made by John. His most rewarding commission to date has been the floor, ridge tiles and wares for Barley Hall, a reconstructed 15th century house in York. In addition to creating period pottery, John has done extensive research into how pottery was used for actual cooking and will be demonstrating how a period meal can be cooked on a tabletop using reproduction pottery and charcoal.
