Athenian Vase Construction: A Potter's Analysis

Athenian Vase Construction: A Potter's Analysis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greek vases are one of the world's finest ceramic traditions. Even before a vase became a painted masterpiece, its graceful lines and elegant proportions made it a masterpiece of form.

Athenian Vase Construction details in a comprehensive, step-by-step fashion the manner in which the major Athenian vases were made. Photographs of pottery from the Getty Museum and other collections provide ancient evidence--from the interiors and exteriors of the pots themselves--as to how they were formed and constructed, while line drawings illustrate how the potter worked.

Book News Annotation:

Brings hands-on experience and insight to the methods for creating the 24 major types of ancient Attic vases. The descriptions are accompanied by photographs showing examples and drawings showing the stages of the process. An introductory section explains the basics and overall practices, and explores a small modern Greek pottery shop. 11.5" wide. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
