About Pottery......

Pottery of ancient Egypt was very unique and creative. This is actually my favorite style of art of ancient Egypt! It is because you almost never see the exact same one, and they are very decorative! (I like the one above because of the cool swirls) In egypt, instead of using clay, they just used mud from the Nile. The pots were burned in a kiln, and turned a reddish/brown color. The Egyptians shaped the mud to make storage jars, cooking pots, and serving vessels.( I would've made a cookie jar!)
