THE RESULTS AND PERSPECTIVES OF STUDYING CERAMIC WARE PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY IN THE MIDDLE DNIEPER REGION IN THE 16th — 18th CENTURIES
Archaeology and Early History of Ukraine
The paper focuses on studying ceramic ware production technology in the 16th—18th centuries. The main perspective methods for each production stage, such as chemical, petrographic and trajectory have been considered, as well as archaeological, sphragistic and ethnographic sources have been analysed. The ware was made of kaolin clay with the addition of sand. Glaze consisted of lead, sand and metallic oxide for color. Clay with the addition of metallic oxide, such as iron, copper etc. was
... per etc. was colorant for painting. The ware was formed with foot potter fast wheel by drawing from a piece of clay. Decor represented relief or painting without or with glaze. The glaze was colored or colorless. The ware was roasted in bicameral kilns with vertical movement of hot gases in oxidizing or reductive medium. Perspective directions of the further study of pottery production technology can be physical and chemical methods, petrography and experiment to verify results of the research.
