Pottery in Ancient Greece Pottery was important to the ancient Greeks. They used pottery to store everything. Pottery was made by working clay on a wheel. In early Greece, (1000 to 700 B.C.), pots were decorated with geometric designs.

Greek pottery and pottery fragments are some of the most valuable tools archeologists use for the study of ancient Greek history. Ancient Greek paintings and structures did not survive like the Ancient Greek Pottery, so the paintings on the vases and pots share the most information about ancient Greek life. What is an ARCHEOLOGIST?

After the 9th century B.C., the geometric pottery designs became more intricate and complex. Around the 7th century B.C., human figures began to appear on the pottery. http://www.ancientgreece.com/GreekPottery/

Using yellow, orange and brown chalk shade your pot to make it appear more 3 dimensional. Use chalk one side in darker tones. I suggest using orange in the middle. Try to blur the line between the dark side and the light side. You don't want to see a dividing line. :

Ancient Vases Tell a Story:

Ancient Vases Tell a Story The body of the vase shows a mythical encounter between Heracles and Geryon. The great Greek hero Heracles, below, aims an arrow at his opponent Geryon on the opposite side of the vase. A procession of men carry unknown objects, perhaps meat for a sacrifice. The image may be tied to the mythical figures on the body of the vase. The story of Heracles and Geryon has been associated with Greek colonization and trade, so the procession may reflect a ceremony connected with some venture. Because traveling was so dangerous, offerings were often made before a journey. Another striking feature of this jar is the complete absence of a foot. Most vases have a firm support at the very bottom, in part to help with stability. The lack of a foot here shows that the potter, or possibly his patron, felt unfettered by the existing conventions of the time—and it made for a tippy jar. Some jars with narrow bottoms would have been placed in a stand. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704590704576092403407821420.html

Now be sure your vases tells a story. Choose a story character and sketch it out on black paper using a white pencil crayon.

To make the pot appear old (ancient) take your brush and using your finger splatter some paint on the dark side. Run your fingertip over the bristles to get that splatter. Make it look ANCIENT
