Do the projects need to be fired?

No, the projects are in what is called "bisque" form and have already been fired. Art In History includes stains that state specifically "do not fire". This allows our projects to be used in almost any setting without needing access to a kiln.

*ALL PROJECTS ARE FOR DECORATIVE USE ONLY*

**It is possible to re-fire the products again however you must use a cone 06 glaze that is NOT supplied by Art In History. If the piece is fired using the stains supplied by Art In History you will ruin the replica.

Why was Pottery used as the art medium for each of your projects?

Throughout history archaeologists have used pottery as a basis for dating the civilization and culture of the discovered site. Pottery had a utilitarian use and represented a prized possession used in everyday life. The face of the pottery was like a canvas in which the potters used to express themselves. Therefore the motifs represented the events of the day usually depicting politics, religion, the environment, and the day-to-day life of the time period.

What kind of research do you do to insure authenticity of the project?

The company uses multiple researchers for creation of the product. The historic period is chosen first by a board of the company using curriculum-based standards. Once the period is chosen, the researchers are then directed to look into all aspects of the time frame using the nine standards set up by the company. These nine standards are History, Geography, Literature, Humanities, Culture, Vocabulary, Writing, Language Arts and Art. The program then goes to the art researcher who, in addition to employing the nine basic curriculum standards, combs through museum references and cross references art guides to insure color and form is replicated as close to the original piece as possible. In some cases, the size of the piece is adjusted to replicate in miniature form so that the piece is easier to handle by the students.
