3D View of an Iron Age Pottery Handle

Post by Fisher1266X » Tue Nov 06, 2018 8:15 pm

We recovered some lovely Roman pottery on Sunday including Samian Ware.
One piece however was something we;d not seen in the field before and it was this IA pottery handle.

Here's a 3D reconstruction of it: https://skfb.ly/6CLGW

Hi KC, some areas are missed on the scan using the free software and therefore creates the 'hollow' effect. To "fill" the gaps would require an upgrade to the next level which may come next......

Very realistic-can get a feel for the piece
Love the work.
Thanks for putting it up.
Reminds me of the transit loops on big urn shaped storage/shippingjars
Usually three round the neck at the widest part.

Lovely to see the whole handle. Thanks, again, for taking the time to do it.

I’ve got part of a 13th/14th cent. handle. Nice bit with some patterning on it. Nice feeling to actually hold something that old and wonder who used it and what the rest of the pot looked like. Another one is a small piece of the base of ( ? ) but the interesting thing about that piece is the pattern made by tiny finger imprints, obviously a child.

Fascinating
