“This book and the exhibition it accompanies are the first to examine in detail the full range of decorative techniques on Athenian terracotta vases from the Archaic through the Late Classical period (approximately 500 to 340 B.C.). An introduction, a chapter on technical aspects of vase decoration, and nine essays accompany the 105 vase entries presented here. The techniques of these vases include coral red, added clay and gilding, plastic vases, white ground, and Six’s technique.”
