Ceramic Art

Pottery is one of the world’s oldest handicrafts and the ceramic tradition developed by the ancient Greeks was surely one of the most sophisticated. The word ‘ceramic’ comes from the Greek keramos, meaning ‘potters’ clay’. Thanks to its durability, pottery has provided archaeologists with an invaluable insight into many aspects of ancient Greek life and culture, including religion, dress and social attitudes.
