edieval Artisan Program of Study for Clay

Minimize
The Craft of working in Clay covers the preparation of Clay from raw Clay to the Finished Product.

We have organized the skills and information about this Craft into a Medieval Artisan Program of Study (MAPS), which includes a set of Skill Definitions, Skill Tests to verify mastery of the Skill, How-To Guides to explain the Skill, Projects the Artisans have done using the Skill, and an Annotated Bibliography relevant to that Skill.

We hope you will enjoy our presentation of this data and find it useful to your own studies.  As always, please provide feedback to us about any of these MAPS if you have additional information or see a better way to organize or present it.

This is an overview book covering the full timeline of Persian History and all art forms. No single topic is presented in depth, but it does provide a good visual and textual introduction to Persian Art. Contains a lot of good photos, most of which are in color.
