Art - Greek vases

The fun part - adding the detail of our designs! We showed real care and patience today as we took the plunge and painted patterns and scenes of daily life on our vases, whichever design was appropriate to the time period of Ancient Greece which our designs represent. The final designs are simply stunning. To say we are proud of our vases is an understatement!

Our air dry clay has dried out nicely so its time to add the base background colour. This shade is important as the background colour denotes which time period of Ancient Greece our Greek pot designs represent. We used mainly used watercolour paint and in some cases poster paint to create our old pottery pieces. Already, some of our work is really looking 'ancient' with cracks and broken handles!
