This Sunday the word
Markingschosen by dear Ros of Mikey's mum blog for Our Beautiful World sounded a bit difficult for me.
So I looked it up to see what markings means exactly!
Here's what Merriam-Webster Dictionary says about markings.
- -a mark, shape, or word that is written or drawn on something
- -a mark or pattern of marks on the body of an animal
- - the act or process of giving a grade to a student's work
I really thought I didn't want to take photos of the third definition so I think I'd better stay in the first one as I have no photos for the second either.
So markings in this blogpost are marks, shapes or words written or drawn on something.
Byzantine Museum along with my ceramics teacher George Vavatsis and my classmate Efharis. Our teacher talked to us about the markings the Byzantines made on ceramic vessels and other surfaces and told us to notice all the interesting markings we could see around us in order to incorporate some of them in our future work. We are supposed to show some of these markings on the bowls we made on the wheel!
Taking into consideration that the wheel threw me out instead of my throwing bowls on the wheel I am not sure if I will manage to incorporate any of the markings / patterns we saw but still they were very interesting and beautiful.
There were mosaics
clay vessels with markings on them
more marble sculptures
glass vessels which I really adore
It was a great visit at the museum.Terra Antiqua
markingsand impressions will end up in my vessels. We will see!
