Irish cauldron/kettle

Do you have any source for an early medieval irish cauldron or kettle? We are looking to get a new, larger one, and so far I have encountered mostly germanic sources (like the Sutton Hoo ones).

Ah yes, I remember having seen that one now.
We are more precisly looking for something quite large, but the shape is the most important of course.

It seems like ceramics were not used a lot in early medieval Ireland. Except from Souterrain ware and a few other local wares, and of course imported vessels from Gaul and the Mediterranean, it looks like other materials were used for cooking material such as wood, metal or leather.
