Title

How Cyprus Vases Were Influenced by Surrounding Areas

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

Old Dominion University’s special collections has five Cyprus vases dating from the Bronze Age to the early Iron Age. Collections such as these are often thought of as reflections of the institution or the collector that acquired them. I want to reframe ODU’s five Cypriot vases as a vehicle for describing the islands history. Each vase was made using a different technique and represents a different period in the islands history. As such, the collection presents evidence for change in pottery production on Cyprus from the late Bronze Age to the early Iron Age, attesting innovations such as the pottery wheel and documenting contact with other cultures such as Phoenicians and Greeks.
