Red-Figure Chucks

Craft & Design

My mom painted these Converse Chucks in the Attic red-figure technique as a gift for my fiancée, the classics prof. Each of the four sides displays a different scene from a different Greek vase — that’s Odysseus bound to the mast in the foreground there. (If it were really in the red-figure style, of course, the red clay would be the only unpainted bits. But why be a noodge?)

    Hi there,

    Older post, I know, but just found it. We actually sell ancient art and would LOVE to own several pairs of these. Would your mother be interested in doing more? I would be very interested in hiring her. If so, please email me directly >> Teresa Dodge, Thanks!
