Black Glazed Ware

The Black Glazed Ware is a type of ancient Athenian fine pottery produced in the Classical and Hellenistic periods. The modern term describes vessels covered with a shiny black glaze which is produced with the sintering of an extremely fine-grained clay paint, a natural colloidal clay slip in water, and an ancient nanomaterial.

The cups and plates produced at our THETIS workshop are based on ancient prototypes from the collection of the Athens Agora and represent the everyday objects used by Athenian citizens (5th-3rd cent BC). 

As you go through this Black glazed ware collection and visualize how these items will elevate a space, we urge you to think beyond home décor. For us, these items are beautiful and practical at the same time, made for you to use in your daily life. They can be safely used as drinking cups and tableware.
