Subject Area
Eine Frau töpfert: sie zerstampft Ton, siebt, wässert und knetet ihn; treibt das Bodenstück und baut die Gefäßwand in Ringwulsttechnik auf; bringt Ritzverzierungen an und brennt den getrockneten Krug im Brennhaufen.
The clay is pounded, sifted, watered, and kneaded. The modelling of the bottom of the jug is done from a lump of clay. The upper part of the jug is formed by fitted-on clay-rims. Below the rim of the jug the woman potter is carving a circular decoration. After drying the jug is baked in an open fire. The material used for burning is dried wood.
