The lost secrets of Classical Athenian vases
Practically all important archaeological Museums worldwide do not offer for sale reproductions of classical Athenian vases and other ceramic artifacts of the classical period. The principal reason is the difficulty to produce technologically authentic reproductions of the fired black, red and white colours decorating the surface. All reproductions offered on the tourist market are painted over with synthetic colours and bear no relation to the techniques of the classical period.

Museum Quality ancient ceramic replicas
An obvious application of the knowledge produced from the study and understanding of ancient technologies is the modern reproduction of ancient artefacts by following the original, ancient manufacturing processes. THETIS, at the moment, is the only company in the Museum market that offers ceramic copies, which do not simply imitate the style of the originals with the use of acrylic paints
