Ancient Greek vases are one of our most important sources for understanding ancient Greek culture, history, everyday life, mythology and iconography. Our collection of replica ancient Greek vases at It's All Greek comes to us from four of our Greek suppliers.
The first specialises in hand-drawn and hand-painted copies of red-figure and white-ground Greek pots and vases. Every gesture, every eyelash, every movement is skilfully drawn by hand. We supplied a selection of this pottery to motion pictures 'Alexander' and 'Troy' and to documentaries about ancient Greek pottery and vase-painting.
The second produces the black-figure, Corinthian, geometric and Minoan pottery. Whilst these items are screenprinted and not 'drawn', they are beautifully hand-painted and have a slightly different finish. This type of Greek vase is popular for the more muted colouring.
The third supplier specialises in producing Greek vases which are designed to look 'ancient' and in some instances, 'mended' too!
