Athenian Vase Construction: A Potter's Analysis

by

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. This highly regarded volume 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. Line drawings illustrate how the ancient potters worked.

About the Author

Toby Schreiber, a potter, has contributed articles to Greek Vases in the J. Paul Getty Museum and the J. Paul Getty Museum Journal.
