Historical ruins of an #anagama kiln deep within the forest in St. Croix county, Wisconsin. The small kiln that existed here was built in 2001 and used until 2012. Most of the bricks were salvaged from a boiler in the basement of #Somerset Elementary School before it was demolished. Included is a picture of an old platter made with clay I dug in Texas. . . #historyofceramics #potteryinfluencer #history #wisconsin #mosquitoes #stcroixpotterytour #kilnbuilding #woodfiring #ceramics #localclay #art #design #craft #nature #nativeclay #handmade #moss #firebricks

Ruins from the Minoan civilisation that lasted for over 1000 years - ending in 1450BC. It is heartbreaking to think of the destruction and bloodshed post this time. What has it achieved? I have enjoyed reflecting on the peace of this civilisation through their pottery ... their fine tea cups, architecture and offerings to those passed. #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #terracotta #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery #crete #minoan #greece

Lamp with a Silenus mask in the #thorvalsdenmuseum collection. Roman, 40-80 BC. “The original Silenus resembled a folkloric man of the forest with the ears of a horse and sometimes also the tail and legs of a horse.[1] The later sileni were drunken followers of Dionysus, usually bald and fat with thick lips and squat noses, and having the legs of a human. Later still, the plural "sileni" went out of use and the only references were to one individual named Silenus, the teacher and faithful companion of the wine-god Dionysus.[2] A notorious consumer of wine, he was usually drunk and had to be supported by satyrs or carried by a donkey. Silenus was described as the oldest, wisest and most drunken of the followers of Dionysus, and was said in Orphic hymns to be the young god's tutor. This puts him in a company of phallic or half-animal tutors of the gods, a group that includes Priapus, Hermaphroditus, Cedalion and Chiron, but also includes Pallas, the tutor of Athena.[Wikipedia]” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

If some beautiful antique Chinese Export planters have been on your wish list, this is your lucky day! These exquisite antique blue and white reticulated bulb trays are perfect for forcing small bulbs or growing succulents or bonsai. They have a double wall with a hand-pierced honeycomb design on the outside and a solid inner wall to keep dirt and roots hidden. The top corners have traditional plum flower petals painted in underglaze blue. Qing dynasty, Ca. mid to late 19th century. I have two available. They’re in very good antique condition. One measures 9” long x 6 1/2” wide x 2.5” high. It has some normal superficial firing cracks (from the firing process...not damage) in the interior. The other is 8.75” long by 6.25” wide x 2.25” high. It has two small normal firing cracks in the top edge, along with a small flake on the inner edge and a small flake on the outer edge. These antique beauties usually sell for upwards of $400 each, but I’m offering them for $285+ shipping each. . . Comment “mine” and direct message us with your PayPal email and zip code for the invoice. Invoices must be paid within 24 hours of being sent or the next person in line gets the item.

Mimbres Black-on-white bowl with three pronghorn in the @dallasmuseumart 1000–1150 CE. “Mimbres potters developed one of the Southwest’s most appealing painting styles, distinguished by geometric compositions and narrative imagery that provides an eloquent record of Mimbres life. The painting on many Mimbres vessels suggests concepts of sacred space or cosmic geography. The edge of the bowl may have marked the boundary of an orderly world, while the center space, often empty and white, may refer to the Earth Center. Here three bighorn sheep covered with spiralized diamond motifs, emanate from that center. The jagged, angular forms convey the dynamic tension of lightning in a darkened sky.” #mimbres #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #indigenousceramics #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

I came to Crete to better understand the meaning or purpose of the female figurines. These ones, with upraised arms, are larger than expected and cult objects from communal shrines of the post palatial period (Post 1450BC) when the Mycenaeans took over Crete. They are Post Minoan and are the oldest known religious images of gods - in Crete. #crete #minoan #postminoan #historyofceramics #femalefigurines #ceramicsstudy #gods

Rhyton, early 5th century BC, Attic red-figure rhyton in the shape of a dog’s head. National Entruscan Museum at Villa Giulia. Amazing gesture and sentiment captured in the modeling of the dog’s head. This piece reminds me of the statue of Galatea (Greek mythology), which was carved by Pygmalion, which then came to life. This, as an object of desire, I think can also be linked to the myth of Acis and Galatea in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. #cupofmyth #myth #archetype #pottery #ceramics #objectofdesire #atticredfigure #greekceramics #symbolism #aras #cgjung #ceramichistory #historyofceramics

🤔 fertile, postpartum and with child. These figurines are myceanen and were commonly found in tombs. It was a time 1600-1100BC when women generally died before they were 30 and men lived much longer.

Great example of a Persian Make-do shared by Doug Navarra (@saintremypottery). Follow him for more #ceramichistory and check out Andrew Baseman’s (@andrewbaseman) Past Imperfect blog for more ceramic make-do’s. ・・・ “Persia, 17th century, Safavid blue & white Tulip Vase. Here a central Baluster form with an elevated flaring mouth, surrounded by five small secondary spouts. These are all mounted with wrap-around metal on the spouts which is also engraved ( wow, how did they do that?) . The body is decorated in underglaze blue but also there are black outlines lending a bit more POP to the very dreamy painterly blue. Obviously set out to be a master work. “ #bluesndwhiteceramic #balusters #ceramics #vessels #pottery #persianpottery #safavid #tulipvase #porcelain #ceramichistory #potteryhistory #potterytradition #studiopottery #historyofceramics

Oinochoe, East Greek Ionia (present-day western Turkey) about 625 B.C. @gettymuseum. “Herds of wild goats and spotted deer graze in single file on the lower registers of this trefoil oinochoe (three-spouted pitcher). On the shoulder of the vase, pairs of dogs, enormous water birds, and sphinxes flank a floral element. The cream-colored background is neatly filled with various patterns including rosettes, some of which are brought to life by small birds perched on their petals. The rows of goats have given their name to this type of pottery decoration: the Wild Goat style. It was popular in East Greek settlements on the coast and islands of Asia Minor (the west coast of present-day Turkey) in the 7th and 6th centuries B.C. Animals arranged in friezes appear frequently in Greek art of this period. At this time, Greeks came into closer contact with their neighbors in the Near East, where repetitive bands of animal decoration were common. The island of Rhodes was once thought to have been the main producer of Wild Goat pottery, but excavation and clay analysis have since established the importance of workshops based in the ancient city of Miletos. The highly ornate Wild Goat style is thought to have been patterned after textile designs, but ivory and bronze objects may also have provided sources of inspiration. The disks applied to the rim on either side of the handle of this oinochoe are clearly derived from metalwork.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #terracotta #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Dish made in Florence, Italy ca. 1450. @vamuseum Tin-glazed earthenware painted in copper, manganese and either antimony or iron. “Large basins have been depicted in Italian paintings and manuscripts in scenes of dining and cleansing. Washing hands prior to dining and during the meal itself was a standard custom in 15th century Italy. This dish, or basin, may have been used for washing and then kept on display on a sideboard to show off its fine decoration. The basin is covered with a tin-opacified glaze which gives a bright white covering on which the design is painted. This type of decorative glazing is known as 'maiolica' in Italy. The image on the basin is a hare standing in front of what apears to be an artichoke. Artichokes may have been cultivated in Italy as early as the 9th century. This basin was made in the latter part of the 15th century in the Florentine region. Another dish in the Victoria & Albert Museum's collection (Museum no. 2593-1856) is a similar shape and size and has the same decoration on the wide rim as our basin here. It is believed that both dishes were made in the same pottery in Montelupo, just outside Florence.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #maiolica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

The sensitivity of this #sgraffito drawing is mind blowing. This detail is from a slip trailed Earthenware Dish in the @vamuseum. Made in the Werra Valley of Germany in 1615. More info on @historyofceramics. “Werra slipware was just one of the many types of pottery which could not be replicated in England, and which was valued for its stylish decoration. What is distinctive about Werra slipwares is the mixture of techniques. On a surface that would betray even the slightest mistake the slip-trailing is handled deftly, while the sgraffito decoration shows a masterly drawing technique.” #slipware #earthenware #leadglaze #sliptrailing #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Slip trailed Earthenware Dish with lead glaze in the @vamuseum. Germany 1615. “General purpose dishes such as this may have been used for almost any type of food, as well as serving a decorative function when not in use. Little distinction was made between bowls and dishes, cups and porringers, jugs and mugs. Werra slipware was just one of the many types of pottery which could not be replicated in England, and which was valued for its stylish decoration. At the same time as these dishes were made by clusters of potteries along the River Werra, a similar range of slipware dishes, much plainer and mainly decorated with geometric designs, was made along another German river, the Weser. A stock range of stylised figures such as soldiers and clowns was developed for use on these dishes. These figures were reproduced over a long period but have no significance other than as decoration. What is distinctive about Werra slipwares is the mixture of techniques. On a surface that would betray even the slightest mistake the slip-trailing is handled deftly, while the sgraffito decoration shows a masterly drawing technique.” #slipware #earthenware #leadglaze #sliptrailing #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Arrowmont latergram no. 4. Last Friday night, five of us who taught at Arrowmont that week all happened to be former Artists-In-Residence, so got together over at ceramic artist, former Program Director, AIR founder, and master storyteller Bill Griffith's (@billgriffith07) lovely home. Bill's home is lovely in part because of his excellent and extensive pottery collection. I asked him if he had a favorite piece, and this Japanese lithophane cup is one of them. I had never seen such a thing! Lithophane is etched or molded, very thin translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source, so the portrait of the geisha at the bottom of this wafer-thin bowl almost disappears as subtle texture without light. . From Bill: "I wish I knew how old my sake cup is. It was a gift from my first ever workshop roommate Norito Saimaru, a commercial artist from Japan (back in 1985 at Haystack). Years later, I visited him and his family in Tokyo. We were drinking sake at his home, and he poured some into the cup and asked me to drink and then look inside, then gifted me the cup." ❤️ . Cheers to Bill and my fellow AIR for a delightful eve! @woodrena @lynnbatch @ashleygilreathjewelry @jasonbburnett 🎉 . #BillGriffith #thebillgriffithcollection #lithophane #Arrowmont #KKoutandaboutpotterylove #historyofceramics

Small Jug from the Museo Della Cerámica Della Tuscia. Viterbo, mid-fourteenth century “Between two pine cones in relief there is a relief protome with a male character in the act of going left and characterized by a hood and a stick. According to Satolli it is the representation of the figure of the "bizocone" or one of the numerous free preachers, dressed in the habit with a long hood, who wandered in poverty in the peninsula and were struck by anathema by Boniface VIII in 1297.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #maiolica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Do you love the really old pieces as much as I do? This charming 19th century Chinese export soup plate is in the Canton pattern with rain and cloud border. This is the real deal, not a reproduction. (I saw four small plates just like this in a historic house museum in Beaufort, SC just last weekend.) Plate is “as found" with all the character and charm expected of its type and age. In the typical style of antique Canton, the outer rim of the plate has asymmetrical ridges and indentations. It has a couple of old rim restorations visible from the back and one spot of overpainting on the front edge. There are also a few fine hairlines (see photos). 9” diameter $42 + shipping. . .

Bowl with Lioness in the @metmuseum. 1100–1300 AD Byzantine Earthenware “Images of lions were popular throughout the medieval world. Although lions were rare in Byzantium, they appear frequently in art—from illuminated manuscripts and elegant silver to everyday objects, such as ceramics and copper-alloy jewelry—and in literature, both secular and religious. The boldly stylized pose of the lioness, which suggests the beast’s power, is also seen on Islamic metalwork.” #pottery #sgraffito #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #sgraffito #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery #earthenware

It was such an opportunity to demonstrate today alongside a potter to whom I credit fostering a passion for historic pottery early on and also providing a good dose of humility now and again!

Terracotta mastoid (drinking cup with narrow base) in the @metmuseum. ca. 500 B.C. Greek, Attic. Terracotta; black-figure. “The mastoid is a variant of the skyphos characterized by the breast-like shape, which provides its name. The eyes on either side reflect a predilection in Attic vase-painting between about 540 and 500 B.C. While their meaning has not been conclusively established, they certainly have to do with the insights afforded by the consumption of wine and its perils. Mastoids are among the vases for drinking imported into Etruria in large numbers.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #terrasigillata #seramik #seramic #poterie
