Read the latest installment in the course blog for "Recreating Ancient Greek Ceramics". Lauren Aldoroty takes us through the success and failures of making and firing replicas of ancient Greek red figure vases. A few more failures than success, but still useful!

Read Savannah De Montesquiou's reflection on the opening of the kiln in the course "Recreating Ancient Greek Ceramics".

The "Recreating Ancient Greek Ceramics" class finally got to see whether the cups they'd been working on for 10 weeks fired black and red, as the ancient Greek pots did in antiquity. Nothing tastes as sweet as sparkling grape juice drunk from a kylix fresh out of the kiln...

The course "Recreating Ancient Greek Ceramics" fired its replica ancient kiln last night (April 8th) under the watchful eye of master potter and kiln master Matthew Hyleck. We went from 52 degrees F to 1750 degrees F in 11 hours with surprisingly little wood and a fair amount of hope that our pots will survive the firing AND come out both red and black. Wish us luck for the opening of the kiln tomorrow night!
