Greek and Roman Crafts: Metalwork, Textiles and Pottery
Black-Figured Pelike by the Theseus Painter
Greek, Attic 500-480 B.C.E.
Chorn Memorial Fund
A small exhibit from the permanent collection was reinstalled to complement a University course on ancient technology. First shown in 1996, the exhibit included examples of cast bronze objects, cold-worked metal vessels, and engraved, gilded, and enameled jewelry. Loom weights, spindle whorls, a weaving comb, and a textile fragment from Egypt represented textile making. Examples of wheel-made, mold-made, stamped and glazed pottery explored the manufacturing of pottery in the Greek and Roman world.
