A Zuni polychrome dough bowl @bonhams1793. Probably the work of We'wha, deeper than typical bowls of the type, the ornately decorated raised rim above a shoulder flexure, a four-armed composition on the base, restored. The attribution to the mixed gender artist We'wha, considered one of the best potters at Zuni Pueblo in the latter part of the 19th century, is based on comparable examples illustrated in Harlow and Lanmon, pp. 522-523, figs. 34.49a-c, p. 158, fig. 9.1 and p. 166, fig. 9.28. All illustrate an exuberant and sure artistic hand in their decoration, while two show the choice for dramatic visual statements in the wider-than-usual rim band. on p. 522 of this reference the famous collector George Wharton James is quoted as saying We'wha's "pottery fetched twice the price of that of any other maker." #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Cypriot Terracotta jug 750–600 B.C. in the @metmuseum. “The decoration consists of a bird with a lotos flower that appears to grow from between the wings and an arrow directed upward. Although all of the motifs are frequent on Cypro-Archaic vases in various combinations, the meaning is unknown, The effect, however, is decorative thanks especially to the masterful placement of the bird over the bulbous body of the jug.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Happy Halloween! Human head effigy jar Maya Late Classic Period A.D. 600–850 Guatemala. @mfaboston The skeletal imagery on this jar symbolizes the human life cycle and that of maize, as the bare maize cob was likened to bones without flesh. Earthenware with cream and specular hematite slip paint, and blue pigment. #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Roman gladiator cup of green glazed, white-baked earthenware (Stuart type 2) from the second half of the 2nd century. Collection of Museum Het Valkhof. “The cup bulges strongly outwards above the foot and then has a straight and slightly inclined wall. The edge is finely profiled. On the wall, a relief decoration has been applied all around in barbotine technique: two gladiator fights that are separated by herms. One scene shows a heavily armed secutor (left) in combat with a lightly armed retiarius. On the other side of the cup are a murmillo (left) and a thraex opposite each other, with between them in a referee. At the far right comes a helper with the curved sword of the thraex. Above the two gladiators are their names: SA [BINVS (?) MV] RM (illo) and IVSTVS TRIIHS. Intermediate spaces are filled with curly tendrils and five large leaf motifs. The performances are framed by horizontal and vertical dotted lines. The cup was found in Nijmegen, in Hees.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Great mathematical balance on this Mimbres bowl posted by Daniel Anderson (@louieseven.2).

Baluster Jug, Britain. Mid 13th-14th century. In the collection of the @museumoflondon. “Kingston-ware cylindrical-necked baluster jug in the highly-decorated style. The decoration of flowers and stems uses various techniques. The flower petals are in applied red clay, with a central boss in the same clay as the body. The stems are applied strips of clay with rouletted decoration, with a copper wash so they show green under the clear glaze. There are also red blobs of clay with ring and dot decoration around the neck. The jug was found on the site of Greyfriars Monastery in Newgate Street.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery
