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.
