Red Figure Thom

Recommended Posts

  • Hash Fellow

Very old Greek pottery in the late 7th and 6th centuries B.C.E practiced something called "black figure", where they painted imagery with black glaze or "slip" on the red clay.

Photograph of a black-figure lekythos showing two human figures reclining beneath a productive grape arbor, from the side against a neutral gray background.


A couple centuries later they reversed that to do "red figure" where they used the black to cover the negative space around the image they were making.

After seeing examples of this work at a museum I wanted to try to recreate some of that look, including the numerous fractures they tended to have after being buried in a dump for 2000+ years.

Thom is a cylinder wrapped decal. The break lines are a combiner material.
