What was it like to use and live with Etruscan pottery? Characterising that experience of Etruscan pottery is the concern of this book. More specifically, this volume aims to unpick both the physical encounter between vessel and hand, and the emotional interaction between the user of a pot and the images inscribed upon its surface.
