Transcript of Pottery around the world

Project: Pottery
Our Project involves making pots from different countries and different time periods, all around the world.... as well as one of our own creation, and comparing the differences between styles, and time periods. This presentation talks about the different types of clay, and styles, used in the styles of pottery we chose.
The set of pots we chose from Egypt date back to around 300 B.C.E., and they were used as makeup pots, with some influence from the Greek. The hieroglyphs on the front representing the contents. The coolest thing about them is the built in glaze, which leaves it with a turquoise finish.
The Greek pot we chose to replicate came from around 400 B.C.E., and is called a Skyphos (or wine cup), showing an athlete standing beside a statue. This scene is believed to be attributed to an Amykos painter.
The Japanese styled pot we chose is a special ceremony dish called a Mukozuke, it was used to serve food during ceremonies. It has an interesting shape, and almost looks metallic.
The Mayan pottery we chose went back to around 900 C.E., where their main colors were orange, tan, and red, due to the red lead infused plumbate salt that was used in the clay. Most pots of Mayan culture were more modernized then Greek pottery because of the freedom most of their artists had previously obtained.
