I got a question about where I get my pottery for fire cooking, and as that information wasn’t here anywhere, I wanted to make sure to add it for next time.

I get most of my pottery from Mistress Morgaina (http://jeannewoodpottery.com/medievalindex.htm).  She has been making pots in a number of Viking appropriate shapes that work very well over the fire.  I also get some stuff from Mistress Gwen the Potter (http://dragonfirepottery.com).  I have had excellent success using Gwen’s pots over the fire as well.

When looking for something appropriate for Viking cooking, look for something flat bottomed, with a “vase-like” (?) shape.  Most of the examples I have seen from the archeological record are shaped like that, although not 100%.
