The Corbridge Urn with double handles, is an original Wakefield design, but was inspired by the pottery of Roman towns in the north of England. In A.D. 85, Corbridge was the most northerly town in the Roman empire. In 2002, Guy Wolff and I made a trip to England and Portugal to work with potters. We spent some time in Northumberland near Hadrian's Wall, which is an area rich with the history of the Romans in Britain.
