Greek Art - BLACK GLAZED LEKYTHOS


LEKYTHOS ARIBALLICOLEKYTHOS ARIBALLICOLEKYTHOS ARIBALLICO

Magna Graecia, IV century B.C. A black glazed pottery lekythos with squat bulbous body, flared rim and funnel neck, strap handle, ring foot decorated with ribbed body.
Black-glazed pottery was produced especially in the Classcal and Hellenistc periods. During reduced firing, sintering of the iron-rich clay led to a shiny black surface. Such pottery was produced both on the potters wheel or impressed in pre-shaped matrixes. The glaze was added on with a paintbrush on the wheel, or by dipping. Within about a hundred years, during the 5th century BC, black-glazed wares replaced the previously popular red-figure pottery from the Mediterranean markets. Since the Hellenistic periods, non-Greek workshops also produced it, usually just serving local or regional markets. In recent years, the importance of the type in modern research has increased considerably, especially in the contexts of culinary habits, regional contacts and trade links.
