About the Event

Description

The class will be delivered over 2 nights from 8 pm to 11 pm EDT 

An amphora, one of the most common forms of Greek pottery, is a type of container of a characteristic shape and size, descending from at least as early as the Neolithic Period. Always with two vertical neck-handles and used for storing and transporting oil, wine and foodstuffs such as olives. Most were produced with a pointed base to allow upright storage by embedding in soft ground, such as sand.

The Amphora has the same characteristic shape of a Greek amphora. Although traditional amphorae often have lids, most have not survived through time. Our amphora is capped with a beautiful melon bead encased with beads.

The body of the amphora is richly decorated with a combination of fire polish beads, baby melon beads and seed beads. The embellishments end in a point resembling the characteristic shape of amphorae. A luxurious tassel from the point of the amphora emphasises the elegance of the sumptuous shape.

A resplendent rope of various seed beads and spacers simulate the vertical “handles” of an amphora and forms a luxurious necklace to suspend the equally opulent amphora.
