Most Greek vases were made on a potter's wheel in pieces then assembled all together at the end. The whole process of making usable clay is a lot harder than I thought it would be.
It's really cool how they can get it so symmetrical.
people had to mix raw clay with water in outdoor pools, and it had to sit until the impurities settled to the bottom. This is a lot harder for them than just for us who can buy clay in a box. The video makes wheel throwing look much easier than it is. - ashton
i think it's cool how the clay is from a pool. it was also funny how they were using their feet to stomp on the large clump of clay. it is very interesting how they made the pots with their hands and the designs were very pretty. i highly doubt mine will look anything like that.-carsondingler
I think it's so cool how much work they put into this to even make the clay
This video was awesome, it seemed like a lot of passionate work to get the clay into the form and even to be so symmetrical
The contrast of the red and black pots were the results pf three firing stages.- Anna Grace Jones
I like this way of doing it a lot more it makes it a lot more symmetrical and looks smoother.
Greek Vases were made with baked clay
I was really impressed at how difficult it was to make a vase, yet they still devoted so much time to make clay pots. Especially the fire pit where they would get the clay.
I think it is very cool how much time is spend on these and how symmetrical it is.
