As a handcrafted quality – each piece will vary slightly and be a unique one of a kind. The handles are generally between 5-7mm holes for hemp or other cords. I have dangled these from key chains with no problems but remember – They are glass! STRONG… but still glass!
Blown from 12mm HEAVY walled tube
Amphorae varied greatly in height. The largest stands as tall as 1.5 metres (5ft) high, while some were fewer than 30 centimetres (12in) high – the smallest were called amphoriskoi (literally “little amphorae”).
Check out the snippets below and learn more about the historical inspirations behind my work.
An amphora (English plural: amphorae or amphoras) is a type of container of a characteristic shape and size, descending from at least as early as the Neolithic Period. Amphorae were used in vast numbers for the transport and storage of various products, both liquid and dry, but mostly for wine.
The Latin word derived from the Greek amphoreus (ἀμφορεύς), an abbreviation of amphiphoreus (ἀμφιφορεύς), a compound word combining amphi- (“on both sides”, “twain”) plus phoreus (“carrier”), from pherein (“to carry”), referring to the vessel’s two carrying handles on opposite sides.
Stories in Clay: Decoding Ancient Greek Pottery
…..Another striking feature of this jar is the complete absence of a foot. Most vases have a firm support at the very bottom, in part to help with stability. The lack of a foot here shows that the potter, or possibly his patron, felt unfettered by the existing conventions of the time—and it made for a tippy jar. Some jars with narrow bottoms would have been placed in a stand.
