Potter Network: "Typology & Technology of Early Dynastic Stemmed Dishes"

Vortrag von Amaury Havé (Paris)

The second half of the Early Dynastic period (2600-2250 BC) is marked by the presence in the ceramic assemblage of a very specific shape, the stemmed dishes. These objects are among the rare ceramics still frequently decorated in this period, and pose a number of problems in terms of functional and typo-chronological interpretation. After presenting the interpretative framework for wheel-coiling as developed by V. Roux and C. Jeffra, this presentation will show how even a partial reconstruction of the forming chaîne opératoire provides a better understanding of the typological evolution of this shape.
