For jar creation it is used clay from attic soil. this clay is mixed with water and get cleaned for frills . Then we take the clear mud and we shape the pottery as we like . on the wheel. the dimensions of neck and body of jar whith the grafbs and the base , are perfect . The walls are thin , the pottery is light and the surface is plane.
following we draft by a pencil the emblazonment we desire to draw. With the diluted clay, which have been incurred careful cleanup, we fill the areas of pottery that we want them to be black. When the figures are black, the potteries are called black figured whereas the background black and the figures are in the color of clay , they re called red figured . In the black figured potteries the details of figures are drafted by needle.
The potteries are drawn raw. When the drawing is complete we put the potteries in the furnace , where differentiate the two colors , the black and the color of the clay. The agleam black is caused by reductive procedure of optisi.
The diluted clay has the color of clay , and with the firing converts into agleam black , which is indelible in age. the colors that we see in white lekythos like green, purple, light blue , red are oxides.The platinum and the gold are 24k and it comes in second baking at 800 C.
