Philosophy of decoration

Gail cup detail macro

I experimented with That Lens Thingy again. I love these dots on this Gail-cup. Punctates I’d consider calling them, if I were in an archaeology lab. Or maybe not, since the vessel is glazed.

Is punctation situational?

Backnote: I’ve been looking at (drawings of) Copper, etc., Age pottery from I guess you’d call it Southeastern Europe lately. More tall vessels than I’d expect.
