Abstract

Human cultures cultivate identity in part through interactions with their physical environment. Through the raw components of ceramic production, primarily paint and temper used in vessels, this poster examines where ancient people choice to gather materials and what aspects of their environment contribute to their cultural identity. This study emphasizes value of material through an ethnographic perspective over a modern perspective, where efficiency of production and durability are key attributes.
