POMPEII POTS

While working as part of a long term project in the House of the Menander in Pompeii with a team recording the building, I noticed the many groups of amphorae that stood in corners of some of the rooms.
Over a period of the six seasons that I worked there, these pots were moved about and changed, often overgrown with weeds and then cleared up.
I took many photos and since then have worked on a series of watercolours and continue to work on more. I love the shapes, they seem to "talk" to each other.
