Vassilis Politakis and Dr Simona Todarro worked together to investigate:

  1. Properties of natural clays , similar to those used in Protopalatial pottery from Phaestos.
  2. Possible techniques of manufacture of conical cups and bowls , which could lead to the same characteristics of the texture and surface of the ancient pottery ( examined macroscopically) :
  3. Pinched
  4. Hand built with coils
  5. With the use of ceramic molds
  6. With the use of the slow Minoan potter’s wheel
  7. Possible process of pottery production , as a cooperation of the potter with his assistants.
