Deadmans Fugitive Red - CA. 800-1100
Deadmans Fugitive Red is essentially a plain ware which was initially slipped. Because these vessels were fired at too low a temperature, the slip did not adhere well, and would rub or wash off easily, hence the term "fugitive". The reddish tint to this sherd is the only remaining evidence of the original slip.
Paste: Medium to dark gray
