  • 1. MAYAN CULTURE BY: Luke Wolfe, Aaron Gamble, Shelby Hervey, & Carlee Robasciotti
  • 2. Mayan Ceramics
    • Sculptures and monuments were not only made for public view but also to express ones feelings.
    • 3. Mayan artists were figured to be in the same class as the elites in society for they shared the same literacy.
    • 4. Most of their pottery was decorated with images of humans, animals, or theological creatures.
    • 5. Their clay they used to make there pots was mixed by hand with volcanic ash.
  • 6.
    • Mayans were great at creating bowls, plates, and saucers.
    • 7. The Mayans also sold and traded their pottery around the Mayan world.
  • 8. Cougar Bowl
    • Cougar bowl was recreated by Luke Wolfe.
    • 9. The Mayans made a lot of pottery that had images or figures on them like this bowl.
    • 10. I created this piece because the Mayans often created pottery that showed respect to the animals who they thought helped protect them.
  • 11. Face Pot
    • The face pot was recreated by Aaron Gamble
  • 12. Beast Sculpture
    • The Beast Sculpture was recreated by Shelby Hervey
    • 13. I created this sculpture as a personal challenge to push my limits. I Felt it was an creation of offering to show how powerful they felt animals presence were in their lives.
  • 14.  
  • 15. Fish Flask
    • The Fish Flask was recreated by Carlee Robasciotti.
    • 16. Not only did they use fish as food, but they also used the oils and other components to make useful tools from bones, and they also used them for trade.
    • 17. I painted it black instead of glazing it because the Mayan culture more so based their pottery and ceramics with hand made techniques.
  • 18.
    • So not only does the fish represent food, and trade, but the ability to make something that can be useful by hand.
