Compare & Contrast --> Chinese & Greek Pottery Chinese Pottery
China, a country with one of the most ancient civilizations in the world, has a time-honored history of producing pottery. Pottery wares dating back more than 10,000 years have been discovered at NanZhuangTou in XuShui County, HeBei Province. Chinese ceramic ware is an artform that has been developing since the dynastic periods. The first types of ceramics were made about 11,000 years ago, during the Palaeolithic era. Chinese Ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns. The creation of traditional and finest pottery is through the coiling method, which would require a high degree of technical experience. In order to achieve the highest quality pottery, it all begins from using the high quality clay mixtures. Introduction :Pottery is dishes, plates, cups, and cooking pots made out of clay. It is a good idea to make dishes and pots out of clay for several reasons. Clay is cheap and easy to get, pretty much anybody can make a useful pot out of it, and you can make it waterproof pretty easily too. In the beginning, pottery was made by just pushing a hole into a ball of clay, or by making a long snake of clay and coiling it up into a pot shape. Many early pots, meant to be used once and thrown away. People first started making pottery out of clay around 6000 BC, near the beginning of the Neolithic period. Before that most people had been nomadic, and pottery is too heavy and too breakable. By around 3000 BC, at the beginning of the Bronze Age, people had begun to use the slow potter's wheel. By 2000 BC, the slow wheel had been almost entirely replaced in Europe and Asia by the fast wheel. Using the fast wheel, a good potter can make a pot every minute or so, and all of them almost exactly the same. It's much faster than coiling or the slow wheel, and so pots got much cheaper than they had been before. Greek pottery Very few Greek painted pictures have survived the 2500 years since they were painted. So they decided to paint on pottery to make them stay longer. Eventhough the pottery is broken, you can still put it back together. Greek painted pottery changed a good deal over time, from the Stone Age to the Hellenistic period. For convenience, we divide it into seven different time periods. The seven periods of time are:
Stone Age Greek Pottery
Early Bronze Age Greek Pottery
Late Bronze Age Greek Pottery
Sub-Mycenean (Dark Age) Greek Pottery
Geometric Greek Pottery
Black-Figure Greek Pottery
Red-Figure Greek Pottery Most Greek pottery was shaped for a particular function or a number of functions. They were used around the house, or for ceremonies, or even entertainment. The Greeks thought of the pots as if they were people, too. They used human terms to describe parts of the pots. For example - handles were called ears and bases were called feet. Similarities They are both made from clay
Both uses painting on their vessels
Use pottery for using
Use fire to heat up Differences Chinese pottery:
Fired up in 1300°C
Art work on pottery usually shows the environment
Greek pottery:
Fired up in 950°C
Art work usually shows about life during that period By: Sae-Lee
