Anorthite needles and iron dendrites in a magnified image of a Song Dynasty black "Hare's Fur" tea bowl glaze from Jianyang, Fujian Province, China. This tells us how potters skillfully manipulated their raw materials and fabrication methods to produce very specific aesthetic effects.
The Laboratory for Analysis of Cultural Materials is dedicated to the study and interpretation of cultural materials from around the world. Our current focus is on light microscopy coupled with digital image analysis, to characterize ceramic, stone, metal, and glass materials. Laboratory work is enhanced by ethnographic field work, currently in Asia. Major goals are to understand geographic variations and changes over time in how people make and use material culture; understand production methods, object functions, intent, and values expressed by material culture; identify mechanisms of deterioration; and develop and test new preservation methods.
For more information, contact Dr. Chandra L. Reedy, laboratory director, at email@example.com
The Laboratory maintains some online tutorials and technical resources.
Some of the current and recent Laboratory projects include:
Innovative Ceramic Traditions of Sichuan Province, China
Great Wares of Song Dynasty, China
Improving Image Analysis Protocols for Archaeological Ceramic Thin Sections
