Item:173987691034Rare Large Ancient Egyptian Pottery bowl (1403-1365 BC) The Egyptians were one of the first cultures in the world to create pottery. They developed an excellent farming-based civilization and it is thought that they made pottery as a way to store grains and food items. They also needed pottery to hold water as well as for cooking foods. Since Egyptians took a lot of pride in their art, they used pottery to reflect their creativity and imagination. Egyptian pottery, like many pottery types, was made with clay. Their location close to the Nile river gave them the ability to have an abundance of clay. The original pottery designs were rather simple, and they took coiled strands of clay and wound it around in circles to make the walls of the clay pot and then smoothed out the walls. Since it’s incredibly hot in Egypt, they could set their finished pottery out in the Egyptian sun to bake and seal the pottery. Later discoveries have shown that they had a pottery wheel, which was slow turning, and gave them the ability to use their hands to make a variety of different shapes and sizes. Egyptians loved color and they would often dip the finished pottery into vats of color dye. When it was dry they would use combs or spatulas to scratch designs and patterns into the clay. To give the pottery a different dark black look, they would also expose it to smoke. Coming from West Bank of Luxor valley of the king.
